    Your position represents your total exposure to the market: an order is simply a request to perform a trade action.

    So, for example:
    1. You made an order to buy one contract. If the order is filled, then your position is long 1 contract.
    2. You make another order to buy 2 contracts. Your position is now long 3 contracts after the order is filled.
    3. You makle an order to sell 3 contracts. Your position is now flat after the order is filled.

      When you place a limit order you have an order and no position.
      When your order is filled, you have no more orders and now have a position.
