Negative Qty in Option Position

Hi All
I held 1 lot of Cipla call option 1000 CE (650 Qty)
By mistake placed sell order twice and both got executed. Now it is showing up the total qty in Negative.

Do I need to buy an additional 650 qty to square it off? How does this work? Please throw some light. Now the Average price is shown as 41.25, to make a profit do I need to buy additional shares at a price lower than 41.25 or higher than 41.25?

Thanks, Deepan

You are holding a short option position now. To square this off, you will have to buy 650 quantity.

When you are short, you make profit when they price drops, as opposed to when price increases when you have buy position.
