Does anyone have an add on that will allow NT8 to display prices as they actually are on penny stocks instead of in whole penny increments

What is the definition in the instrument ?
I think if you put the correct minimal increment, the price will be shown correctly in NT 8

I do not find any property to change the minimum value in options or anywhere else. Do you know where that would be?

Thanks for your help

Not just one symbol any lower priced stock that has fractions of a penny increments round to whole pennies in NT 8

Thank you, I found it is there a way to change the default for all pennies or do I have to change each one independently

Not that i'm aware off.

The platform does not know 'pennies' as a definition.
and i'm not aware of a system wide setting.
