    How large can orders be in IDEAL FX? I can put in small orders below the advertised size but not bigger. Is this right?

    I believe that a bigger order would be routed and filled in IDEALPRO, so I guess they don't have a limit other than the IDEALPRO limit which I think is about 4-5 million.

    If the dollar value of the trade is less than 25k, then orders are routed to Ideal. If 25k or greater, they are routed to Ideal Pro. You can go to their website to get a breakdown for what the size would be if USD is not the base currency in the pair.
