Hello:

I wanted to find out if there are field length limits on FIX tags 11 or 41
for FIX 4.1. I was unable to locate any information about allowable lengths
of those fields in the specifications. If there are limits, can you direct
me to where they are in the specifications?

I am not aware of any length restriction from FIX standpoint. However, in the states, if you have OATS obligations, you better keep it within 20 characters. I've longer clordids outside the states. The rule of thumb is to keep in under 20.
