How do I get 6E to format prices properly when using S5 Trader and DTNMA?

We checked with the MarketDelta Trader and the tick increment is being set by S5 Trader. Your best bet would be to multiply the DTN MA symbol by 100 so that the data aligns with the S5 Trader (OEC) data. See the following link for instructions on how to fix this: Linnsoft’s solution

To recap, you should have the DTN Symbol set up as @EU#*100 and the Display format set to 99.99. This will display your historical data the same way that Stage 5 is feeding your real time data.
