The point size is defined by the broker's contract specifications, not by you. Don't confuse "pips" with "points", especially not for gold.

You need to learn how it works and adapt to how the market defines things. If you are still confused, then use a trading panel or assistant EA to do to the calculations for you.

EDIT: You can also have the trade tab show profit in money instead of points.

Bro My Profit target per trade is 36 pips and I'm using 1.5 lots so it difficult for me to track as profit and I also increase or decrease lots sometimes so is there any EA to calculate only 2 digit Profit points for 3 digit Profit point and is there any EA for customizable profit points to show

Every single trader on MetaTrader uses the same information that you see.

They have the option of calculating the values mentally, or with the aid of a calculator or spreadsheet, or they use a trading panel or assistant EA (there are many in the Market and some in the CodeBase too).
