Pending orders are distinguished as stop orders and limit orders.

A limit order limits the price at which a trader is prepared to buy or sell. There are two types of limit orders: a buy limit order is an instruction to buy a financial instrument at a specified price or lower; a sell limit order is an instruction to sell a financial instrument at a specified price or higher.

A stop order is an instruction to open a trade when a predefined price level is reached. There are two types of stop orders: a buy stop is an instruction to buy a financial instrument at the market price; a sell stop is an instruction to sell a financial instrument at the market price. These types of orders can be executed at a better or worse price than the one set by the trader.

A pip (percentage in point) is the term used for the smallest movement in currency prices, which are generally quoted to four or five decimal points, with the exception of currencies quoted to two decimal points. The pip is the fourth digit after the decimal point for currency pairs quoted to four and five digits, whereas the pip is the second digit after the decimal point for currency pairs quoted to two digits. For example, EUR/USD 1.3201 and USD/JPY 98.12.

A requote usually occurs in volatile markets conditions. This means that the price requested by the trader is no longer available. In this instance, the price may have already changed by the time a trade order is received; therefore, the trader is offered the next available price. The new price, however, can either favor or be against the trader.

It usually occurs in special market conditions like fast moving volatile markets or low liquidity conditions. Slippage may be positive, negative or neutral.

To calculate the pip value you multiply the pip by the number of lots. For example, on a standard EUR/USD lot (100,000 units) the calculation would be 0.0001*100,000 = 10 of the quote currency. Additionally, on a standard USD/JPY lot the calculation would be 0.01*100,000 = 1,000 of the quote currency.
