WHAT IS POINT (PIPS)

Point: is the smallest standard for measuring exchange rate movements in currency pairs
PIP is the abbreviation of the word “Percentage In Point

The point represents the fourth decimal number 0.00001 In currency
pairs

Except for pairs that contain:
Japanese Yen, Gold, Silver, Oil, and Gas
The second decimal number is 0.01
When the pair moves EURUSD
From 1.0559 to 1.0569
This means that the pair has moved 10 three basis points
The same example applies to:
JPY, gold, silver, oil and gas
Take the USDJPY against as an example

Let’s assume that the dollar exchange rate is ¥ 115.75. If the exchange rate moves 4 points upwards, then the price will be 115.79

And to alert! Trading platforms currently offer 5-digit exchange rates for currency pairs and 3 decimal places for Japanese yen, gold, silver, oil and gas pairs.

PURCHASE PRICE, SELLING PRICE AND SPREAD

 

Each currency pair has two exchange rates, which are traded on the basis of the purchase price and the selling price.

The purchase price is also called the Ask price, which is the price at which you buy.

The sale price is also called bid price, which is the price at which you sell

and for example: GBPUSD

Ask price: 1.3362                                                                        Bid Price: 1.3353

 

Note: that the price of the request exceeds the price of the offer by a small amount, which we call the price difference SPREAD.

Price difference: The profit margin obtained by the party executing the transaction, whether it is a brokerage company or bank or exchange office.

Therefore, the spread of the price is the difference between the prices of supply and demand of the currency pair and we must know that each pair of currency pairs different price differentials from other pairs, the reason for differences in price differentials of currency pairs due to the real volumes in the forex market on these pairs, for example:

We find that the EURUSD is the lowest pair in terms of the price differential due to the high trading volume on this pair.

The price differential for the Euro-Dollar pair varies from broker to broker.
Therefore, the price difference is a competitive point between the broker firms, and it is necessary to know the price differences provided by the broke company before dealing with them.

As we are talking about brokerage firms, we must mention that
brokerage firms offer price differentials on two types:

TYPE 1: FIXED SPEARDS:

The broker is obliged to display the spreads consistently in all trading periods. The exchange rates in this type are usually 4 decimal digits for nonyen pairs, and two decimal places for yen pairs.
for example:

EURUSD Ask :1.1443   Bid: 1.1441   Spread : 2 pips

TYPE 2 : VARIABLE SPREADS:

Where price differentials vary depending on the volume of liquidity and market conditions; this means that spreads may widen in some market periods and may shrink in other periods. These companies typically offer 5 number currency exchange rates for non-yen pairs, and three decimal places for yen pairs.

Example Global:

EURUSD  Sell At:1,14410 with 0.1 standar lots   Close at:1,14210     Spread fixed at : 1 pips

so:

Rule: ((Action Price – close Price ) – Spread ) x lots value= Valuer=

= ((1,14410 – 1,14210 ) – 1 ) x 1$

=(20-1)x1$=19$ win in this EURUSD trade
