I have an option symbol in a WL Dummy account that the strategy is unable to close. The reason is the option was apparently repriced, so the symbol has changed. I'm unable to manually close the symbol because it either won't find pricing for the old symbol, or a position for the new one.

Any way to edit the symbol in the Dummy Account or otherwise brute force delete it?

As a record of the orphan position is kept in WL8's Settings.txt, choose "Open WL User Data Folder" from the File menu, CLOSE WL8, then edit delete relevant line in the file:

BRK_Dummy Broker=.|...|.|..|Account ..|......|......|......|...|.|..|ORPHAN-SYMBOL|...

By "edit", Eugene means "remove",
You will not be able to successfully "change" that line. If you try, you'll damage the file.

After looking at it more closely...
All the Dummy Broker information and positions are in that record. If you delete it, you'll delete everything.
And like I said before, editing it might break the file.

But where there's a will, there's a way. Let's see if we can find it...

Editing the record will basically break all the accounts for the Dummy Broker.
I think the options for now are:
1. Ignore that account and use another Dummy Broker account, or,
2. Delete the entire record and start with a fresh Dummy Broker.

Unless Glitch has a solution for you, I'll log the discrepancy for a future solution.

You could also Reset a Dummy Broker account from the Configure dialog,

Yes, that cleared all positions in the account. Thanks Glitch, Cone, Eugene, for the help.
