When one takes a contract (or a trade or a position) on a currency pair, the pips do not necessarily have the same value.
This essentially depends:

  • on the size of the contract (i.e. the number of units of a currency pair)
  • the definition of the pip, which is not always the same depending on the pair selected (e.g. the pip for the EUR/USD = 0.0001, the pip for the EUR/JPY = 0.001)

The exact formula is the following:
z pip XXX/YYY =z* S * dPIP expressed in currency YYY
Where

  • z = number of pips as a gain or loss
  • S = size of the contract = no. of units of pair XXX/YYY
  • dPIP: the definition of the pip based on the pair XXX/YYY

For example, if you took out a contract for 100,000 EUR/CHF and you won 60 pips, you have therefore won: 60 * 100,000 * 0.0001 = CHF 600. If you want the result in EUR, it is necessary to multiply this amount by the unitary CHF/EUR rate.
In the following formula, you can enter the size of the contract as well as the number of pips which you made as a gain or loss during your trade.
You can also choose the currency in which you want the result to be given.
