PIP is the smallest in the Forex market one percent. A pip is a point for the calculation of income. When a mini lot (10 K currency units), each pip is worth one unit of the currency in appointing their own operating. If your account is denominated in USD, for example, each pip (depending on the currency pair) is worth about $ 1.

A pip is similar to a tick or point in stocks or other markets. It is an acronym for Percentage Interest Point (in English) and is the smallest trade Forex for individual unit. The pip is always the right-most digit of any forex price quote.

In many micro or trade 1k, each pip is worth about 1/10 the amount it would be worth in many mini-for about $ 0.10. in all pairs with Japanese yen (JPY), a pip is 1/100 place-2 houses to the right of the decimal point. In all other currency pairs, a pip is 1 / 10,000 of the houses of the place-4 to the right of the decimal point. (Created By using Trading Station II desk FXCM) will see that station bargaining digits for pips are a large print. This makes them easy to see.

The exact value of an individual pip depends on the currency of the transaction. The euro is calculated to four decimal units, so each pip equals 1/100 centavos. The yen, however, is calculated to two decimal places, so a pip is a dime. This is not to say that each pip has a value of 1/100 cents – to calculate this, we need to introduce two other terms, batch and leverage.

**Batch**

It is due to start operating in small batches. Micro lots are 1k, so if you want the value of a pip for a micro lot, multiply the trade size by one pip for the pair to be marketed.

Banks and other liquidity providers operate in batches currency. A standard lot is 100,000 (100K) units of the currency being traded, while a mini lot is 10,000 (10K). How are you money amounts would make trading prohibitive for the average trader, brokers introduced a concept called leverage (leverage).

There are two simple methods to determine the value of a PIP. First, on the platform you choose to operate, you will find the pip value of less commercial size. In the account above the minimum trading size is 1k. Therefore, the pip value in trade shares advanced window is based on a commercial size of 1 k. For EURUSD, which means that each pip is $ 0.10.

In this example, we will calculate the value of a pip for a batch of 10k in the EUR / USD. Therefore, since I’m using mini series of 10 k, I’m starting with 10,000. I multiply by 10,000 from 0.0001 1/10000 is a pip for all pairs (except Yen crosses). That makes me a value of 1. This will be valued in the “counter currency” (currency) of the pair I am trading. In this example, I am trading EUR / USD and USD is the counter currency of the pair a pip is worth $ 1 USD for one 10k lot EUR / USD.

Then we talk about how to use support and resistance to help determine market size. If you are familiar with the support and resistance, you will know to determine market size before deciding to open a trade.

**Leverage**

Leverage (leverage) allows you to control more money in a transaction that you have deposited in your account. This is where lies the real power of forex trading, but must be cautious, because the leverage is often a double-edged sword. This can work for or against you.

With a leverage of 100: 1, you need 1 unit of currency to control 100 units in the market. Thus, only need 100 units to control 1 mini lot (10K) in the market, or 1000 units to control 1 standard lot (100K). With a leverage of 200: 1, you would need 50 units to control 1 mini lot, and 500 units to control 1 standard lot.

If your account is based in dollars, should analyze the equivalent of $ 1 gain or loss on my account for each pip is going to move in the EUR / USD market. Now, if your account is based in Euros (EUR), would have to make $ 1 USD to Euros.

To do this, simply divided by the current exchange rate EUR / USD, which at the time of writing is 1.3797. I’m here because dividing a Euro is worth more than USD, so I know my answer should be less than 1. 1 divided by 1.3797 is 0.7248 Euros. So now I know that if I have an account based on euros and profit or lose one pip on EUR / USD 10 much k1, I will win or lose 0.7248 Eur.

The gain is a result of multiplying factor leverage by the amount and size of lots of operations, the amount of price movements in its favor measured in pips. The losses thus calculated the same way, when the price varies contrary.

Let’s make another example of GBP / JPY. Let’s go to a trade 10k. This time, a pip is 0.01, as it is twice 10000.01 JPY is 100. Once again, that “100” is the counter currency, so it is 100 Japanese yen (JPY). Now we have to convert 100 yen for the name of your account. If you have an account based on USD, so take 100 and divide it by changing the Yen USD / JPY, which, at the time of writing it was 105.11. You will receive a reply from $ 0.95 per pip.

In general, if you buy 1 mini lot of the currency pair EUR / USD, the capital of your account would increase or decrease by $ 1 for each pip movement. If you buy 1 standard lot, then your account would increase or decrease $ 10 with each pip movement or price.
