Many institutions in the forex market quote prices down to 1/100th of a cent in the euro/U.S. dollar currency pair. 1/100th of a cent is called a “pip”; therefore, a change in the price of a euro from $1.1263 to $1.1264 is a change of one pip.
Rakuten Securities HK actually shows prices with an even greater degree of precision, down to 1/10th of a pip (which is 1/1000th of a cent). Forex prices are always quoted in pairs, such as the euro to the U.S. dollar (abbreviated EUR/USD). The price shown in the dealing rates box to the right defines how much of the second currency one unit of the first currency is worth.
