    Hi,
    I am a newbie in Forex Trading. I tried to enter an order to buy EUR/USD 25,000 but IB did not allow me to trade saying
    "No IDEALPRO trading permissions". I use only the paper account which has $26K. And they said I should have 1:50 leverage, right?
    If so, why can't I even place an order of $25K???

    Thanks in advance

    Most likely because you have no Trading Permission for IdealPro:

    Log in to Account Management, go to "Trading Access" and there you have to configure what Market Data you subscribe to and what Markets you want to trade.
