Position

A market commitment; the number of contracts bought or sold for which no offsetting transaction has been entered into. The buyer of a commodity is said to have a long position, and the seller of a commodity is said to have a short position. Related: Open contracts.

Position

The state of owning or owing a security or other asset. One has a long position when one owns something, while one has a short position when something is sold, especially sold short. See also: Close a position.

position

The ownership status of a person's or an institution's investments. For example, a person may own 500 shares of Sun Microsystems, 350 shares of Boeing, and a $10,000 principal amount of 9% bonds due in 2001. See also long position, short position.

position

To buy or sell securities in order to establish a net long or a net short position. Also called take a position.

Time-averaged three-component velocity profiles at certain axial positions have been analyzed, and the results show that the freestream is accelerated twice when it passes through the two propellers.
(2006) gave a comparison between the numerical and experimental tangential velocities of gases at two axial positions, respectively, 0.12 m and 0.33 m from the top of a cyclone.
The electronic spectrum of Ni[(ATSC).sub.2][(NCS).sub.2] is characteristic of octahedral geometry and a six co-ordinated structure (Nakamoto 1978) with the two NCS groups occupying axial position in the [NiL.sub.2] plane is therefore, suggested.
However, in the cis-1,3-CHDA configuration, the carbonyl oxygen of the ester is in proximity of the other ester, provided that the ester groups are in the axial position. The esters interact to form a six-member ring as a transition state.
Because the high air suction in the chamber results in high axial air velocities, the ([V.sub.a] - V) relative air velocity is used in the term instead of the actual velocity of the filament fiber, g is the gravitational acceleration and [C.sub.f] is the air drawing coefficient of the filament fiber as a function of the Reynolds number, which will vary with axial position, [C.sub.f] was given by Matsui [22, 23] with the following correlation:
We speculated that the removal of residual anterior LECs by anterior capsule polishing may minimize changes in ELP and the axial position of IOL induced by capsular bag contraction and anterior capsule fibrosis.
They are commonly used for axial movement, phase reference angle, reverse rotation, tapered shaft axial position speed measurement and reciprocating compressor rod drop monitoring.
One complete turn changes the eyepiece's axial position by only 3 millimeters.
Changing the screw's axial position is said to change the degree to which the mixing zone is filled with melt and the amount of shearing that takes place.
Although different measurement methods have been proposed, all of them assess the axial position of the corneal apex and represent the change in the anterior-posterior direction only.
Our air drawing model of spunbonding polymer consists of the continuity equation, the momentum equation, the energy equation, the constitutive equation, and the crystallization kinetics equation [7-16] etc., the surrounding air conditions are considered as given functions of axial position [17-19], are obtained by numerical simulation.
