Hello Ryan,
Percentage in point (pip), otherwise known as price interest point, is the slightest arithmetical price move in the foreign exchange market. That change in price during an exchange is what is known as a pip.
Generally, pip usually the fourth decimal point of a quoted price. For example, in $0.0001, the pip here is one since it is in the fourth decimal place of the stated amount.
While determining the value of a pip, you need to note that its price will depend on the currency pairs you are trading. It will also depend on the currency you will be using as your base and counter currencies. 
By determining the value of pip Forex traders can tell how the equity in their trading account will vary depending on how the market currency moves.
Each currency is usually attached to a particular market value. Therefore it is essential to determine the worth which a pip holds for every one currency pair.
