davcer 1 pip = 1/10000
davidt876 don't listen to davcer.

1 pip = smallest possible change in the price given the number of decimal points

Price quoted as 99.11/99.15 (BID/ASK)
Difference = 4 pips

Price quoted as 100.23/100.39
Difference = 16 pips

It's not a percentage measurement or consistent accross prices. It completely depends on how the price is quoted.
jejemike A pip is 1 percentage in points, which is 1%/100. this is equal to 1/10,000

since the difference is 0.0016=16/10000, it means 16 pips
