Comment on BTST/ATST( Buy/Acquire Today Sell tomorrow)

1. I received a mail today regarding 25 shares of Filatex India which I bought on 25 Jan, among which 5 shares have been short delivered. I thought shares get short delivered if it hits Upper Circuit. The script didn’t hit UC in this week. How does it get short delivered? Doesn’t the brokerage firms auto square off the short positions when there is a provision to do so?

2. I also noticed in some scripts where there is a big gap between bid and ask price, when I place a buy order, a higher bid is placed at the same time. If I cancel the order, the higher bid gets cancelled too. It is as if someone wants me to bid higher. Is it a sign of operator manipulation?

3. Is there any leverage for option buying in MIS, or BO or CO?

4. Is there any extra leverage for option writing as BO or CO if my stoploss is 10 points?
