Hi,

I would like to calculate desired fx trading lot size for my trades.

For that I would need to include in my spreadsheet study a value of the selected currency pair tick value.

How can I do that, please?

Thank you!

Currency value per tick is in cell J56.

Hi Tom,

I noticed it but it is not correct as I see it. Maybe I am missing something but 1 pip value per 100 k lot is far different for EURGBP than for USDJPY for example and J56 does not show it.

So I thought maybe there is a place for customizing it in data feed settings or something.

You can change the default currency value per tick here:
Global Settings >> Symbol Settings

Here's the documentation:

For the spreadsheet to show an updated setting, you'll need to choose a different symbol, then choose the original symbol.
