"What percent of daily volume can we take down without affecting the mkt price - 25 percent? "

Well, strictly speaking, the answer is zero.

Snarky answer aside, you really can't pinpoint an amount. Even tiny purchases have tiny effects on the market price. The size of the impact is proportional to the size of the purchase. Certainly if you took down 20% of the volume you would have some impact, and taking down 25% of the volume would have a little bigger impact.
