In short, I really f#$%@d up today. I realize how big an idiot I am and I deserve all kinds of criticism and mockery, however could someone please help me my question. What are my options if I mistakenly held 1 long oil futures contracts(qm) until expiration(today)? I'm just a day trader and I have no desire to take physical delivery. Is there any way to avoid this obligation, or am I required to do this? O.k., fire away, and thanks in advance for your helpful responses.
