I'd think that amount of capital and risk tolerance determines position size.

That is not what I'm asking. I am asking at what point would you be concerned that your orders will become partially filled strictly due to size. That is independent of your risk tolerance.

For example, I think it's safe to say that if you're trading micro or mini lots, youre probably not going to have issues getting filled. However if you are putting out an order for 100 Lots, you can expect to experience partial fills until your order is consumed (if ever fully consumed). Does that make sense?
