On Wedenesday last week I posted a bullet for 500 shares and then sold short brut for 500 shares, nothing happened to this order(no fill) so I sent it again to BRUT. Immediately I received the shares. A minute & half later an additional 500 shares popped into my blotter with Brut the contra. I'm now iiiegally short 500. I covered the entire 1000 in the next minute with $345 being the profit from 500 shares illegal. My boker firm disgorged these profits saying they would be forwarded to the NASD. I have a number of problems with this 1. I spoke with the NASD they have no such policy 2. This has happened before with another broker and if you have a legitimate explanation they let you keep the profits-Brut not reporting the confirmation is a legitamate explanation 3. I had to approach my broker two days later to find out why my equity was innacurate, only then did they tell me 4. Nothing been posted to my account to document the monies being debited. Can anyone tell me what the rules/policies are about this. Should I pursue it?
