Thanks, but I'd like to know a little more.

My daily procedure goes like this...
1. At 4:30 each trading day, WLP Strategy Monitor runs all my strategies, including my Wealth Signals strategies.
2. I look at the alerts from Strategy Monitor, to determine Wealth Signals action.
3. If a strategy has alerts, I open it in a strategy window, rerun it, and post the alerts from the WealthSignals tab
4. (Here might be an issue) If a strategy has no alerts from the Strategy Monitor run, I simply open it on any symbol, click the WealthSignals tab and click "NST".

Finally to my question... Will my step 4 procedure cause WealthSignals Publisher to think all my open positions are orphans because I didn't run the strategy on the whole portfolio?

What you're doing will work fine. NST (No Signals Today) is with respect to the Strategy, not any particular symbol. You can also enter NST from the website page.
