Hi,

As far as I know the minimum price increment is $0.01 on NASDAQ for stocks above $1.00 yet I got $6.515 (and other 3 or 4 digit precision prices) for NOVL in the tick-history request, one example would be the 2008-03-05 15:58:50,6.5150,100,6.5100,6.5200,2578287,0,0 tick, w/ $6.515 last price. Was that min. price increment for stocks above $10 or could this be a data issue?

Thanks in advance,

lvarga

I have sent this to our Market Data team for investigation. I will post with more information as I receive it.

The minimum increment for a bid and ask for stocks above $1.00 is $.01. However, the minimum increment for a trade is $.0001, as some trades are electronically matched to that precision.

Thanks Steve for checking this for me. And this would hold true on Nasdaq only right, ie. on NYSE/Amex the minimum price increment is $0.01 for both bid/ask and trades?

Regards,
lvarga
