A PIP or a Percentage-in-Point, is the change in decimal of a currency pair that accounts to our profits in forex trading.
It is with this that we incorporate all our analysis so that the next change of pip, for a set of time will be of congruence to our buying or selling convictions.
So what is a Pip? Remember EURUSD?
Lets say 1 EUR = 1.35879 USD, hence making 1 EURUSD = 1.35879,, the .00009 there will be your Piplets and your .00070 is your Pip. So 1Pip = 10Piplets.
Okay Again, Lets say you have 1 EURCAD = 1.54768 , the .00008 there is your Piplets and the .00060 there is your Pips. Basically the fourth decimal will be your pip , while the fifth is your piplets.
But there are other currency pair which its Pip is on its 2nd decimal.. For example 1 CHFJPY = 115.843 , the pip there would be .040 , while the piplet is .043 .. Kindly check your broker’s conditions to this.
So How do Pips work in Forex Trading?
*Fractional Pip is the same with Piplets
