### How to calculate pip value

The pip value for a contract on Deriv MT5 is calculated based on this formula:

Pip value = point value × volume × contract size

For synthetic accounts, the pip value is calculated in USD.

For financial accounts, the pip value is in the quote currency for forex pairs.
