Jigsaw is working perfectly with the change. I'm glad you have the "least significant digit" option!

Here's what I have:

Ninja is working for me after manually changing the tick size - but I had to delete my historical data and recreate my charts before I got it running.

MC.NET is working for me after a manual change in tick size - although I know someone else who is still struggling

OEC Trader/S5Trader is working with the exception of volume profile having gaps, which you can see on the chart based volume profile there.

So not too bad all things considered...

Liquidity seems very low - not sure if that's just the HFTs hands-off through the transition or this is the new normal.

Below 100 contracts on every level.

I think TT f**k up - the new 6E does not work correctly.
This should be their core competence - failed !!!

Is 'TT' you mention the Trading Technologies feed?

If so my TTnet feed via AMP and Sierra Chart is fine. SC advised they had made the changes last night. I just applied the new Global Settings and all was good.

TTNET data problem on 6E

I'm still having issues with the TTnet data on Sierrachart. No levels on the DOM etc. Here is the reply I got from Sierra support yesterday :
"We are aware of this and TT has been told about it. There is a problem where the Bid and Ask prices are 10 times the actual value.Puzzling why this still has not yet been resolved. "

Anyone else still having this problem ?

This sounds like an issue specific to Sierra Chart - you may want to consider posting in the Sierra Chart thread to see if other users of that platform are affected.

I am fully agreed with the stated before. It is, for me, very clear this benefits HFTs due to the increase of the opportunities. Besides, the biggest HFTs, are at the same time some of the market makers, i.e., Goldman, JP, etc...

Doing this, CME makes EUR more attractive to HFTs. so CME makes can makes more money from it.

As far as they way of trading on EUR (6E) is concerned. All depends on the type of trading you use. If your trading is based on technical analysis you will not notice any differecen, but if you use order flow or tape readin, as in my case. All your study will have to be done agian since all volumen distribution, liquidity is or can be affected by this decrease of the tick size.
