What are pips in forex?
A pip in forex means the smallest price change a currency pair can make, except for fractions of a pip or 'pipettes'.
For most currency pairs 1 pip is 0.0001; for currency pairs with the Japanese Yen, such as USD/JPY, 1 pip is 0.01. When trading metals, 1 pip for Gold and Silver is 0.01.
When the EUR/USD moves up from 1.0925 to 1.0926, the change is 1 pip. With 5-digit pricing, if the EUR/USD moves up from 1.09255 to 1.09260, the move would be half a pip.
