First of all, you have some balls to day trade such a large position size on an unregulated exchange.

Second of all, depending on your trading hours and your trading method/strategy, you can solve your problem by switching to liquid futures like the ES. If you want to go with 6E, you might be limited by your size because 50 million units of EUR/USD on the spot market is equivalent to 400 contracts of 6E. I don't believe the 6E is liquid enough to handle such a large order, even during peak liquidity. But in any case, you may want to seriously reconsider the instrument you are trading.
