Where to get Point Value from?

    I am newbie for the futures trading (CBOT, CME). I’m using several data vendors in my trading software but all they do not provide with Point Value for symbols. The procedure of adding the Point Value manually each time is not very convenient for me. So, I would like to hear your opinion on how to receive a Point Value without human intervention, directly from data feeds. Please suggest how you are coping with the issue.

    Thank you so much.
  2. Unless your trade execution platform provides real-time position updating, I think you're out of luck. I'm not aware (doesn't mean it doesn't exist) of any data vendor providing point or tick values, which may or may not be minimum flucuation values. Quote data is just quote data regardless of the underlying instrument.

    Good luck.
