How much is each pip depending on the lot?

usd cad pips1 What is a Pip?
For example, if the exchange rate for USDCAD moved from 0.9800 to 0.9802, it means that the rate moved up 2 “pips”.
In the case of JPY crosses, such as USDJPY, if the market moved from 80.10 to 80.12, it means that the market also moved up 2 pips.
pip percentage in point1 What is a Pip?
Some Forex brokers offer fractional pip, so you get a 5th decimal (0.98023 for USDCAD) on USD pairs and 3rd decimal (80.123 for USDJPY) on JPY pairs, it is basically the same thing but with slightly more precision…
PIP stands from “Percentage In Point”, because it is usually 1/100th of a percent of the currency quote, or one basis point… I know all of these terms and acronyms could be confusing, just think a pip is more or less equivalent to a tick in the stock market…
10 dollar per pip1 What is a Pip?
A pip value is different depending on the pair traded. As a rule of thumb, any pair ending with USD, such as EURUSD, GBPUSD, or AUDUSD etc… equals to $10.00 per pip for a standard lot contract of $100,000. Don’t worry, I will cover what is a Standard Lot and other lot sizes in my future videos…
But if the currency pair does not end with USD, then here is the formula to calculate Pip value.
(PIP / QUOTE) X CONTRACT SIZE
jpy pip value1 What is a Pip?
For instance, USDJPY is trading at 80.15, so one pip, or 0.01 as the 2nd decimal, divided by the quote rate, then multiply it by the lot size, which is in USD $100,000…
(0.01 / 80.15) X $100,000 = $12.47 per each pip…
What if you the pair does not have USD symbol in it, such as EURGBP? Well, we need to first calculate how much quote currency it requires, then convert that into USD… Please watch my video on Currency pairs for more information on Base and Quote currencies.
eur gbp quote1 What is a Pip?
So for this example, EURGBP is at 0.8920, or for every EUR you get 0.8920 GBP. To figure out PIP value, we will use the same formula of (PIP / QUOTE) X LOT SIZE
(0.0001/0.8920) X EUR 100,000 = 11.21 Euro Per Pip
And since the exchange rate for EURUSD is at 1.4600, or 11.21 EUR = $16.37… therefore each pip in EURGBP pair equals to $16.37 USD (in a standard $100,000 contract).
Of course you don’t need to calculate pip value manually, your broker trading platform will do that for you, you just need to concentrate on the market and trade…


How much is each pip depending on the lot?

Putting the two concepts(pip and lot) together, we can really get to know how much money each pip assumes when the price of a pair moves, depending on the amount of lot, with which we are trading.
Thus, in the major pairs (except the USD/JPY), trading with lots, every pip involves 10 units of the currency. While trading with mini lots would be 1 unit, and doing it with micro lots only 10 cents. Dividing this value of price by the pip, we get the pip value in the base currency.

That is, if you buy 1 lot of EUR/USD and trading gains 50 pips, we are talking about a profit of $ 500, lowering it to $ 50 if we bought a 0.1 lot and it will be only 5 dollars if you bought was a micro lot or 0.01 lot. For the pip value in euros, we divide these values ​​in dollars for the price of the current pair. If the EUR/USD is 1.1352, for example, $50 would become 44.0451 euros.
