Availability of Level 2 Forex data from banks

Hello Quantnet,

I need your quick opinion on something. Given that I'm a hedge fund, do you think it's possible to get level 2 forex data real time from the banks? As in, can I give Barx a call, set up a live feed, and have streaming in their order book for all the major currencies.

To my understanding, we only get big updates, like a massive order, and periodic updates on the order book twice in the day.

Obviously, whatever intraday strategy based on level 2 data requires real time updates.

Is this possible?
