What is the difference between holdings and positions?
The holdings tab displays a tally of securities (stocks, ETFs, bonds, etc.) in the demat account, whereas the positions tab displays any open positions taken in intraday or the derivatives segment. The values in the positions and holdings tabs vary depending on whether they are viewed on Kite or Console. The difference is explained below.
