This paper provides empirical evidence on the relationship between order size, volatility and spread in the foreign exchange market based on a FX dealer's quotes. It uses a new data set that includes intra-daily data on trading volumes. The results are broadly consistent with the findings of the literature. It is found that spreads are independent of order size in both markets for the tow currencies.
