ok. nevermind. IB is good. I use them.
you are short. You have agreed to deliver. The long agrees to take delivery (accept the OJ...all 15M lbs. per contract). But, forget about that.
I don't think your contracts are going to get hurt like the example I mentioned. I wanted to point out what happened to someone else short on LTD.last trading day, again, not you.
the earlier you get out in the day the better. if you start moving up your bid during the day the long will just sit back and watch you dollar yourself to death.
maybe you buy in half/all on the open. these things never work out to youradvantage..been there, done that.
