Pip is short of "percentage points" and is the smallest increase in forex trading. In the forex market, the price is quoted to the fourth decimal point. For example, if a bar of soap at a pharmacy is valued at \$ 20, in the forex market, the same soap will be quoted at 1.2000. Changes at the fourth decimal point are called 1 pip and are usually equal to 1/100 of 1%. Among major currencies, the only exception to this rule is the Japanese yen. One Japanese yen is now worth around \$ 0.01. So, in the USD / JPY pair, the quote is only taken for two decimal digits (ie at 1/100 yen, as opposed to 1/100 with the other major currencies)

is there a difference with pips?
or pip is the plural English term, "Pip" becomes "Pips".

but now many brokers also provide 5 decimal forms called pipettes.
sometimes there are also those who call it points.

what do you think is right or is this just a term?

it seems like this is one of the most important parts of things that must be learned by beginners because sometimes I personally am still confused in pips calculation because some say 4 digits and 5 digits.

difference in broker 4 digits and 5 digits, in a pip count is an additional 1 digit behind the comma.
example.

4 digits behind comma: 1.3212
5 digits: 1.32123

oh so that's it, man. for example if we open a lot 0.01 if we experience a 100 pip increase,
we will get \$ 10. or if 0.1 increase in 100 pips, it will be \$ 100 profit

depending on the leverage that you are using. in pips 0.01 for a standard account. so if you OP with lot 0.01 the pips count is still 0.01 .

pip is a calculation for 10 points for pairs with 4 decimal places

semilsa
for eurusd currency pairs
1.23000 rose to 1.23050 to move up 5pip
Similarly, if you use a pair with 4 decimals

maybe this is what I know.

Price every single poin (pip or pipette) with standard lot.
- 4 decimal or 2 decimal, 1 poin (pip) equal with 10 USD
- 5 decimal or 3 decimal, 1 poin (pipette) equal with 1 USD

Notes:
1 pip : 10 pipette
