What is a Pip Calculator
The term "Pip" is the acronym for "percentage in point” or “price interest point”. A Pip in Forex trading refers to the smallest price change a currency cross can make, except for fractions of a pip, if a broker displays the quotes in 5-digits, often called "pipettes".
In Forex trading, for most currency pairs the value of 1 pip represents a 0.0001 point movement. For currency pairs traded against the Japanese Yen, such as the USD/JPY, the value of 1 pip represents a 0.01 point movement. When trading metals, the value of 1 pip, for Gold and Silver, represents a 0.01 point movement.
As a practical example, when the EUR/USD cross moves up from 1.2158 to 1.2159, this price movement, or change is 1 pip. With a 5-digit quote, widely used by almost every FX broker, if the EUR/USD moves up from 1.21580 to 1.21585, this price increment would be half a pip (0.5 pip).
Pip values vary not only by currency cross but also by the account base currency. Traders can use our intermarket prices live feed pip calculator to easily and accurately calculate the pip values of several FX pairs, cryptocurrencies crosses and metals.
How to Use the Pip Calculator
Currency pair: Traders can select from the Major Forex crosses, Minor pairs, the most popular cryptocurrencies (BTC, ETH, LTC, Stellar and Ripple) against the USD or Gold/Silver against the USD. Let's choose, for example, the EUR/USD.
Trade size: Forex pairs are 100,000 units per 1 lot, but units per 1 lot vary on non-forex pairs. In this field there's the option of calculating the pip value based on the lots traded or the units traded. Let's choose, on our example, a trading size of a 0.10 mini lot.
Deposit currency: As pip values are different for each FX and each cryptocurrency cross and subject to the current market quote of a cross, by selecting this field, it will be possible to accurately display the pip value of the selected instrument in the trader's account base currency (from AUD to ZAR). We choose EUR as deposit currency, for our example.
Now, we hit the "Calculate" button.
The results: The pip calculator uses a market price live feed with the current interbank rate (in a 5-digit format) and it will display the current pip value based on the selected account base currency (in our example the EUR).
So, the pip value for a 0.10 lot of EUR/USD, with a market rate of 1.21580, on a trading account in EUR, is currently €0.8225. Traders should remember that pip values are always the same, independently if the market is going up or down, but can vary quickly, depending on the current market rate.
