I and another person (in a different location) have seen situations were we are running a strategy against a live account. Positions are opened and closed, pretty much as expected. Following de-activation of the strategy we have both seen new orders being staged. This appears to have happened even after deleting the strategy as well.

Any ideas regarding how this could be possible?

1. Have you closed the Strategy Monitor?
2. What OS and .NET are you running?
3. Do you run ATP side by side?

1. I removed the strategy, but did not close Strategy Monitor
2. Windows 10 and it looks like 4.6.2
3.Yes on ATP side by side

I am now seeing orders that I submit in Orders that are not being placed. They just show Submitted and nothing shows up in ATP and they are never placed. I am logged in and getting streaming data from Fidelity. I restarted WLP about 3 hours ago. It is looking like WLP is not very stable or reliable :-(.

This is a long-standing known issue:

Wiki > Open Issues > Order stuck submitted
Forum > Fidelity WLP Orders don't get placed properly (Stuck Submitted)

Hopefully this gets resolved, sooner or later.

Anyway, this is the first time I've heard about new orders being staged following de-activation of the strategy.

Scott, please let us know if the "background execution" is reproducible. Thanks.
