Is the 6E 12.50 a tick? Best time to trade it Texas time?

I'm wondering if the 6E is 12.50 a tick, and if the best times to trade it are the same as the US markets, like the CL. Which is from 8:00 in the morning to 2:00. Thaks for any help

Yes, 12.50 per tick
RTH (07:20 - 14:00 CST) seems to have the highest volume

In my experience 3:30 to 5:00 AM is good then farts around to around 7:00 AM then is good til about 1:00 PM (unless somethings going on and it's still being actively traded). I also look at it from 6:30 to about 10:00 PM (it tends to be slower but trades can be had). All times are EST. As a side note you might have to be a little careful at the N.Y. open just like the 3 - 3:30 AM time period, I usually wait a half hour to let the lunatics figure out what they're going to do.

I like 5:00 - 8:00 am CST, then 9 - 11:00 am CST. Sometimes you can get a nice pattern 7:00 - 9:00 PM CST

$12.50 tick is correct.

What session template?

Thanks for you guys responses first of. I'm guessing I should use a 24/7 time template? I'm using NT7, you guys might not be so you may not know, but I'm thinking atleast one of you uses NT7. Thanks for any help

Can't speak for anyone else but yes, I selected "default 24/7" for "Session template" in NT7 (and previous NT versions as well).

Regards

I recommend you do not set the chart template to 24/7 or default, the currency futures market is not a 24 hour market its 23, it closes for an hour each day unlike the globex equity futures

I suggest you select the template "CME FX Futures ETH" template selection under the "data series" tab
