FutSpread - Futures Spread Size

Identifies the spread size setting for futures.  Significant revenue can be lost on the spread between the bid price and the ask price.  For example, a stock trading at 5.00 could have a bid price of 5.10 and an ask price of 4.90.  In this particular example the spread is .20.  StrataSearch includes such a spread in the evaluation results by adjusting the entry price by half the spread, and the exit price by half the spread.  The result is that evaluations can better simulate actual trading.

The spread size is configured on the Trade Amounts tab of the Trade Settings.
