On each connected broker you can configure a Max Strategy Positions value and TradersPost will not allow any more positions to be opened than you have configured.
Max Strategy Positions
In this example if you have 5 open positions and you get a signal from a strategy subscription that would result in a 6th open position, then the trade signal will be rejected.
