Format of Price EURUSD Denali Data feed Trade DOM

Hello Sierra,
I have noticed that by default, prices in the Trade DOM for EURUSD spot do have 5 pipettes difference. I have seen that the settings to be changed to have a 1 unit granularity are in Chart Settings: "Tick Size", "Currency value per tick". In the Documentation it is said that I should pay attention to setting these parameters properly because they will affect Live trading.
I wanted to change the visualization in the DOM so that I could see all price levels to the 1/10th of a pip granularity, so I have changed the tick size to 0.00001: what should be the appropriate "Currency value of a tick" to ensure consistency?
Thank you

In this case you would take the existing Currency Value per Tick and divide it by 5.

I am sorry, I still have not clear what are the settings I should use. Does it mean that I should use 0.00001/5 for "Currency value per tick"? Thanks

0.00005. So that means that the new one should be 0.00005/5 = 0.00001?

We cannot answer the question because we do not know what the existing Currency Value Per Tick setting is in your particular case.

Refer to post #4.
