## USDJPY Pip Value Calculator Example

The best way to explain how the USDJPY calculator works is to show an example. I will make a few examples so you can see the difference in calculations.

First example is when you have USDJPY currency pair with USD as a deposit currency:

• Number of pips: 1
• Instrument: USDJPY
• Lot size: 1.00 (100,000 units)
• Deposit currency: USD
• GBPJPY pip size: 0.01

Second example is when you have USDJPY currency pair with USD as a deposit currency:

• Number of pips: 1
• Instrument: USDJPY
• Lot size: 1.00 (100,000 units)
• Deposit currency: JPY
• GBPJPY pip size: 0.01

### How to Calculate Pips for USDJPY

To calculate pips for USDJPY you need to use following formula which defines the pip value:

For deposit currency which is equal to base currency, USD:

Pip value = (Pip / Current market price) x Lot size

For deposit currency which is equal to quote currency, JPY:

Pip value = Pip x lot size

### USDJPY Pip Value

Now with the formula you have you need to use the first formula where the deposit currency is USD.

#### Pip Value for Base Currency

For deposit currency which is equal to base currency, USD, pip value will be equal to:

Pip value = (Pip / Current market price) x Lot size

Here are other data you need:

• Number of pips: 1
• Instrument: USDJPY = 160.927
• Lot size: 1.00 (100,000 units)
• Deposit currency: USD
• USDJPY pip size: 0.01

Now, when you put all the data in the formula you get:

Pip value = (Pip / Current market price) x Lot size

Pip value  = (0.01 / 160.927) x 100,000

Pip value = (6.21e-5) x 100,000

Pip value = 6.21

#### Pip Value for Quote Currency

For deposit currency which is equal to quote currency, JPY, pip value will be equal to:

Pip value = Pip x Lot size

Here are other data you need:

• Number of pips: 1
• Instrument: USDJPY = 160.927
• Lot size: 1.00 (100,000 units)
• Deposit currency: JPY
• USDJPY pip size: 0.01

Now, when you put all the data in the formula you get:

Pip value = Pip x Lot size

Pip value = 0.01 x 100,000

Pip value = ¥1,000

#### Pip Value for Third Currency

Third case is when you have a USDJPY currency pair, but the deposit currency is EUR. Which is not USD or JPY.

This case requires that you make more calculations. If you use the USDJPY calculator then the whole calculation is done by the pip calculator.

But, if you want to do it manually, then you need to use the following process.

First:

• decide in which currency you will calculate the pip value. Will that be USD or JPY

Let’s use USD. The formula for the pip value will be:

• Number of pips: 1
• Instrument: USDJPY = 160.927
• Lot size: 1.00 (100,000 units)
• Deposit currency: USD
• USDJPY pip size: 0.01

Pip value = (Pip / Current market price) x Lot size

Pip value = (0.01 / 160.927) x 100,000

Pip value = (6.21e-5) x 100,000

Pip value = 6.21

Second:

Now, you need to use the EUR/JPY currency pair so you can extract EUR pip value from it.

Current market price for the EUR/JPY = 160.27. Which gives us EUR = 160.27 JPY.

So, the formula would be:

Pip value (EUR) = Pip value (JPY) x [1/(EUR/JPY)]

Pip value (EUR) = 1000 x 0.00624

Pip value (EUR) = 6.24

## How Do You Calculate USDJPY Pip Profits?

With the above calculated you can calculate USDJPY pip profit.

Let’s say you have an open SELL order on the market with the USDJPY = 160.00.

And you want to close the trade at USDJPY = 160.20.

The price difference in pips is:

Pips = |Entry price – Exit price|

Pips = |160.00 – 160.20|

Pips = 0.20

You can see the difference is 20 pips between open and close price.

Now, the profit for 20 pips is:

Profit = Pip value x Pips

Profit = 6.24 x 20

Profit = 124.8

If you want to use USD as a deposit currency then the pip value is 6.21:

Profit = Pip value x Pips

Profit = 6.21 x 20

Profit = 124.2

## Conclusion

Even the Forex basics is not so easy to understand, but in time you learn everything.

Use this calculator and other calculators to see how much you will make per pip so you can set stop loss and take profit properly.
