I assume you are publishing to the "Positions_Exchange" exchange with a 
routing key of "Account:Account1" or "Portfolio:Portfolio1". Messages 
will end up in queue "amq.gen-4ae4QUbSNevC/RgM+8C9CA==" in either case.

If you are expecting one publish command to produce two messages in the 
same queue then that won't happen. See the documentation of queue.bind:


In particular:

A server MUST not deliver the same message more than once to a queue, 
even if the queue has multiple bindings that match the message.
