How to determine pip position on rates?

Recommended Posts

Normally position of a pip in the market rate can be easily figured out and rate’s “Big Numbers” properly displayed. For example for most markets rates come with 5 decimals and pip is in forth decimal position. For JPY-termed markets the rate comes with 3 decimals and pip is in second decimal position.

Not so for CZK-termed markets. For them rate comes with 5 decimal but pip is in third place. The only other currencies that I know of that have pip in the third position are INR and CYN.

Should we hard code it or add another data element to Market Info DTO?

By the way, presently eur/czk and usd/czk markets are displayed with wrong “big numbers” and, correspondingly, spreads.
