What is an open position?
An open position is a buy or sell trade that has been entered, but which has yet to be closed with a trade going in the opposite direction. For example, if you bought a stock but have not sold it yet, then it will be standing under “open position”.

- F&O: For derivatives, it includes trades done today and all carried forward previous positions.
When a position is open its value fluctuates continuously depending on the stock price movement.
