Returns an absolute numerical value, indicating the number of contracts or shares held in the current position.
- This function can only be used in signals.
- To use the CurrentContracts or CurrentShares in an indicator, see i_CurrentContracts and i_CurrentShares respectively.
Will return a value of "1" if the strategy is long 1 contract or share.
Will return a value of "5" for 5 shares short.
CurrentContracts returns an absolute value for both long and short positions. Multiply it with the MarketPosition to get the negative sign for short positions. For example:
MarketPosition(0) * CurrentContracts
Will return a value of "-9" if the strategy is short 9 contracts, and will return a value of "4" if the strategy is long four contracts.
