What is the actual position

Postby arjfca » 13 Dec 2010

Helllo

Is there a command to read the actual # units that represent a position in the account?. I already know the command MarketPosition that will tell me if I'm short, long or even in the account. This is good for a backtest, but not for a live session



Is it possible to know the quantity of units per instruments in a live account?
