IB provides Japanese Yen data in the form 0.012303 and my EOD data provider can give the data to only 4 digits to the right of the DP. To trade I would have to use the end of day data which would drop the last two digits to get 0.0123. My data provider can give me data in the form 1.2303, is there any way MC could convert it to 0.012303.
My other alternative is to use EOD data for backtesting and download historical data from IB for trading.
Shifting the decimal place?

I do recall a thread where the MC programmers were looking at doing that, not sure if that functionality has been brought into the software yet. I would need to be able to use it for auto trading. Do you know if this can actually be done?
