On the off chance that necessities and commitments of a bank in specific money are equivalent, the cash position is shut however assuming they there is a jumble – it is called open. Shut plan is a somewhat steady condition of the financial area. Yet, getting a benefit from the adjustment of the conversion scale with this plan is unimaginable. The open one thus can be “long” and “short”. The position is called as «long” (on the off chance that necessities surpass commitments) and “short” (commitments surpass prerequisites). Long situation in a specific cash (when the Bank’s resources in the money surpass the liabilities in it) bears the gamble of misfortune assuming the swapping scale of that cash falls. Short money position (when the liabilities in that cash surpass its resources) bears the gamble of misfortune assuming the swapping scale of this money will rise.
