What makes this do difficult is that trying to accurately predict the little 20-30 pip blips and bleeps over and over again on a consistent.

Video What are Pips and Lots? (Lots in forex)

IG TV's presenter Sara Walker explains what Pips and Lots are when trading forex. Pip value is the value attributed to a one-pip move in a forex trade.

Unlike share price movements, which are measured in recognisable units of currency such as
pence or cents, forex changes are measured in very small units called pips.
For example, if the EUR/USD price moves from 1.20160 to 1.20170, that 0.0001 USD rise in
value represents one pip. For most major currency pairs, a pip represents
a one-digit move in the fourth decimal place. One important exception to this is where the
yen is the counter currency. Here the second decimal place is the one to watch.
Any extra decimal places shown in the price are known as fractional pips or pipettes.
To take advantage of these small changes in

value, forex is traditionally traded in large
batches called lots. A standard lot is 100,000 units of currency.
You may also come across mini lots and micro lots, which represent 10,000 and 1,000 units
respectively. Small investors generally don't have access
to such large amounts of money, so many forex brokers allow clients to trade on leverage.
Leverage essentially means you can open a large market position with a relatively small
deposit, called a margin. Any profit or loss is based on the full position
however, so gains or losses could far exceed this amount.
