A pip is a unit of measurement in trading to express the change in value between two currencies. If the EUR/USD moves from 1.1050 to 1.1051, that .0001 USD rise in value is ONE PIP.

A PIP is what defines your profit or loss, the value of the pip is determined by the ‘volume’ or contract size you opened.

Each currency has a separate value from others, so it is necessary to calculate the value of the pip for each currency pair. We also want a constant so we will assume that we want to convert everything to US Dollars.

On all the majors, for a position of 1 lot (100.000 of the base currency) each pip is worth $10)

Example:

EUR/USD

Open position: Buy 1 lot (100,000) EUR/USD AT 1.29530

Close position: Sell 1 lot (100.000) EUR/USD at 1.29930

1.29930 - 1.29530 = 40 pips

40 pips x $10 = $400 profit
