Returns the number resp. the current profit of all open long resp. short trades with the current asset and a given name. This function is often used to limit the number of open trades for a certain trade algorithm, thus reducing the risk.

Parameters:

Returns:

Number of open trades (numLong/numShort)
Total current profit of open trades (valLong/valShort)

Remarks:

Example:

if(numShort("Cycle") < 3) // only 3 open trades of type "Cycle"
enterShort("Cycle",0,0);
