i remember watching OJ run from 165 or thereabouts to 212 or so one day when a short held on too long. There at least seems more liquidity to your X cak. OI was only 8 caks or so on the day i mentioned.
my advice would be for you to get out as early as possible. the market will not come to you because it knows you are a weak hand. you will be punished for overstaying.
you might see about delivery to the long if your broker has cash connections.
