Have you ever wondered how many pips it takes to buy a house?
It’s crazy how much trading has skewed our perception of money, and how we think in terms of the price of something.

Although pips are the smallest (yet most fundamental) unit of measure, the slightest change in them can equate to major wins and losses.
