Hello, I changed the tick size in NQ from 0.25 to 0.50 to be able to see better but now the dom bid ask nrs don't mach what I have in the market depthh historical graph on the chart. I am wondering why that is.

Thank You!

The Market Depth Historical Graph is going to display at the Tick Size that you have set - so every 0.50. But if you did not change the Market Depth, then those will continue to show at the actual traded tick size - 0.25. If you want to change the Bid/Ask Market Depth to be the same as the modified Tick Size, then you would need to change the "Chart >> Chart Settings >> Market Depth >> Market Depth Combine Increment in Ticks". Refer to the following:
Chart Settings: Market Depth Combine Increment in Ticks (Chart >> Chart Settings >> Market Depth menu)

Thanks for getting back to me.

I made that change and now the discrepancy is worse, before on the dom it was on average 15-20 contracts more at the same level and now is over 30 more.
Since the tick size is now 0.50 and i did what you said, what i did is, I changed it to 1 point in the market depth menu i think.

I don't know what to do, i read in another post from you guys that changing the tick size should work.

Thank You

Ok, I just found where the problem is. When I chart NQ and set MNQ as trade and Current quote symbol the dom does not match with Market Depth historical Graph. Is the dom info coming from the MNQ when I have it set this way?
