Hi,

can someone explain to me how I translate pips into real "money" when trading with MetaTrader 5.

Example:

- I have bougt 1.00 unit (volume) of EUR/CHF for 1.23158

-.I have sould this 1.00 unit of EUR/CHF for 1.23132

- The resulting profit is EUR -21.12

How do I calculate this profit, i.e. why does 0,00026 of EUR/CHF correspond to EUR 21.12? Can I do this calculation by myself using the information provided in MetaTrader 5?

...1.23158 - 1.23132 = 0.00026 or 2.6 pips or 26 points. Some people (and recently Metaquotes called a pip what is for me a point on 5-digits broker). For 1 lot (100.000 unit), you have 26 CHF profit (loss)

So you have to convert it in your money deposit which is EUR, that gives 26/1.23132 = 21.12 EUR (rounded)
