Big Figure

The whole dollar amount of a quote. For example, if a security is trading at $26.45, its big figure is 26. Many traders do not include the big figure when providing quotes, especially for highly liquid assets like currencies, because they assume other traders already know them. The big figure is also called a handle, especially in the United States.
