In early 2001, U.S. stock & option markets began quoting costs in decimal increments rather than fractions of a dollar. At the same time, the minimum cost increment, or tick size, was reduced to a penny on the stock markets & to 10 & 5 on the option markets. Although many believe that decimal cost has benefited small individual (retail) investors, concerns have been raised that the smaller tick sizes have made trading more challenging & costly for large institutional investors, including mutual funds & pension plans.
