What does PIP mean?
A PIP is a very small measure of change in a currency pair in the forex market. It is the achronym of “Percentage In Point” and it can be measured in terms of the quote or in terms of the underlying currency. It is is the smallest amount by which a currency quote can change, which is usually $ for U.S.-dollar related currency pairs, which is more commonly referred to as 1/100th of 1%, or one basis point. How do we estimate it? All the currency pairs ( except for the Yen ) are quoted with 4 or 5 decimal places. PIP is always calculated on the first 4 digits. EXAMPLE:
- EUR/USD is rising from 1,2315 to 1,2316, we had 1 PIP gain
- EUR/GBP is growing from 1,18245 to 1,18745, we had 50 PIPs gain
What does SPREAD mean?
Keeping in mind that in forex markets operators trade one currency for another, SPREAD represents the difference between the price the trader can buy the currency buy the currency ( BID ) and the price to sell it ( ASK) in a common forex trade. In a currency pair, the first one is called the “base currency” and the second is called “quote currency” ( base/quote ).
But how do we calculate it? Let’s suppose we have a EUR/USD bid price of 1,1147 and ask price of 1,1149, here the SPREAD amounts to 2 PIPs. Generally the amount of SPREAD we are dealing with is charged by your broker to get its service commission on the trade.
