I'm not sure if anyone else has reported this - if they have I couldn't find it. But I've noticed during the day, if I switch between paper and live accounts in Account Balances and Positions, the positions will no longer appear in one or the other (depending upon which one was open to start). And if trades occur in the orders windows, they will error out saying the positions don't exist in the accounts (though they really do). Thanks.

There are several bugs in WLP 6.9.15 with the Accounts tool, primarily when you have multiple accounts. This sounds like another permutation of that. Sorry, but we too are waiting for notification from Fidelity when they plan to fix this :/ Anyway, thanks for the report.
