Hi all. I'm a reasonably experienced stocks/options trader on the IB platform. I've been investigating doing FX trading and mostly have my head around everything. I have a paper trading account which I've been using for experimentation. There's one thing I don't quite get. Obviously, you don't want to be placing orders which get routed to IDEAL. The minimums for IDEALPRO are listed as follows (sorry for bad formatting): Underlying Minimum Maximum AUD 30,000 7,000,000 CAD 27,000 6,000,000 CHF 30,000 7,000,000 EUR 18,000 4,500,000 GBP 13,000 3,000,000 HKD 200,000 45,000,000 JPY 3,000,000 700,000,000 MXN 250,000 60,000,000 SEK 175,000 50,000,000 USD 25,000 6,000,000 These numbers appear to be in contracts, not dollar value. If I want to trade, for example, EUR.USD, this is fine, because there's a roughly 1.5 multiplier. However, if I want to trade EUR.JPY, the contract price is around 150. Any order I put in for less than 18000 contracts gets routed to IDEAL. This means the minimum dollar value of the trade is 2.7 million dollars. I must be missing something here, as this doesn't seem right to me. Any help appreciated, thanks.
