Maximum trade You can make in Dukascopy is equivalent of 25 000 000 USD. Maximum exposure for one instrument one client can hold is the same.

I think maximum trade size and maximum exposure to a given instrument are two very different quantities and hard to compare. You can't have too big of trade size without affecting the market. That's why all brokers aim to limit the size of a single order to a given size. On the other hand, there is no problem with having a high exposure I guess, unless you are trading on significant leverage. To make bigger positions without touching the max order size, many hedge funds use automated strategies that place numerous orders in a short period of time and thus benefit of the market liquidity to place huge positions in the market efficiently.
