Step for changing lots

Hi, 

can I find out programmatically the step for changing lots for FX different pairs (for example 0.01 for USDJPY or 0.0001 for EURUSD)?

In the Security class, we can find the SymbolProperties object, where the follwing properties can be found: 

SymbolProperties.Description
.QuoteCurrency
.ContractMultiplier
.MinimumPriceVariation
.LotSize

Once we have subscribed to the tickers, we can access the minimum price variation like this:

var pipetteEURUSD = Securities["EURUSD"]
.SymbolProperties.MinimumPriceVariation;
// pipetteEURUSD is 0.00001

var pipetteUSDJPY = Securities["USDJPY"]
.SymbolProperties.MinimumPriceVariation;
// pipetteUSDJPY is 0.001
