Price Consolidation on TradeDOM

Would you please allow prices (scale increment values) to be consolidated on the TradeDOM? Without it, some securities are untradeable.

I've included a screenshot of how ThinkorSwim and TT handle this.

I'm happy to provide any product manuals, screenshots or additional details.

Thank you for your consideration!

I've been manually multiplying my Tick Size and Currency Value Per Tick but it's a lot to keep up with many products and seems potentially dangerous live? Are there any side effects?

Yes, combining the Market Depth is helpful but I'm referring to combining the price scale.

Scale Settings -> Scale Increment, does not work correctly for me on a TradingDOM. Am I missing something?

Thank you for the change made in v1987 regarding the Scale Increment to be honored.

However, do you see how this way isn't helpful for us TradeDOM users and not how implemented in other ladders?

Is it possible to take advantage of the Scale Increment while keeping prices stacked in a ladder as described with ThinkorSwim and TT, etc?

I just want to add that I'm okay with manually multiplying the chart's TickSize and CurrencyValuePerTick to accomplish this, but I'd just like to verify with you this is supported and shouldn't have any side effects.

I'd hate to be thinking my P&L is one thing and then be ninja blowing an account behind the scenes, when managing many products.

Yes it is perfectly fine to change the Tick Size and make a corresponding change to Currency Value per Tick. There is no problem with this. There is no trading safety problem with doing anything like that.

After making the required changes, you will also want to compress the price scale as needed:
