Hi everyone,

I am writing an algorithm and in that algorithm, there is need for having multiple open market positions for a symbol. I found the following text in the documentation of OrderSelect function:

 "For each symbol, at any given moment of time, only one position can be open, while there can be several pending orders for the same symbol. "

 But when I search in the net, I see people don't have this problem, so my question is: is it possible or not? If not, does anyone know any workaround for that? Any help would be very appreciated.
