I would like to know the tick size equivalent for the Nikkei 225 m futures contracts.

I can find different information:

https://www.barchart.com/futures/quotes/NPH20/profile with:

Tick Size: 10 points (JPY 2,000 per contract)

but in contrast:


Tick Size: ¥5 (Value per tick: ¥500 per contract)

Which information is correct?

The JPX information is correct.

  • $\begingroup$ I asked the barchart support about their opinion. First they recited the information that is available at their link stated above. After I pointed out the differences between their site and www.jpx.co.jp, I did not got an answer until now. So you are very probably right :-) $\endgroup$ Mar 11 '20 at 20:59

The exchange is always the authoratitive source wrt contract specifications.
