Debtless posted: If there was a huge jump in price of the assets traded then your example could be possible. Say price was 1:1 and trader use 0.1 Lot . The pip value was 1 USD per pip, so if the trader made 1 trade with 100 pips and they would make 100 USD profit / loss . But then price change to 1:10 and trader still use 0.1 Lot, if so the pip value would change to 10 USD per pip. So if the trader made 1 trade with only 90 pips, they would make 900 USD profit / loss. Hence, they could make an overall loss of -10 pips but would make a profit of +$800 USD
