2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

It seems, but I'm not sure, that they are really just increasing the "resolution" from one pip to half a pip.

I use E7 as a half of 1 6E, because of the tick size. Now they are esscentially the same. (I am assuming that margin isn't being changed, so E7 would be more beneficial since it is lower margin.)

1 6E = 2 E7 = 5 M6E. I would trade a mix of all to have different position sizing options. I did this scaling in and out over longer timeframes.

They are probably doing this to increase revenue. They will likely keep the same exchange fees for this product as the current .0001 tick size.

They did the same thing to the yen at some point...traded it about a month ago and it took me by surprise.

Anyway as one who dislikes change anyway, I think it sucks.

I think smaller tick sizes make it more attractive to HFTs as it increases arbitrage opportunities.

What will be interesting is what it does to liquidity. Will we now see half the liquidity at each level or will we actually see more people come in?

It is their market after all and no doubt they are doing it to increase revenues. From a risk perspective, there is no difference for us guys between trading the 2 markets - UNLESS liquidity overall reduces and then risk goes up.

If you have any questions about the products or services provided, please send me a Private Message or use the futures.io "Ask Me Anything" thread
