    I once held an oil futures contract too long and got a delivery of 100bls of Brent Crude to my apartment.

    Turn on those computers!
  4. omg is this a joke? hahahahaha
  5. 6/16 is the last trade date. If you own the contract after the close on 6/16, you will be delivered against. You can roll it beforehand though. The CME has a calendar spread market that trades in 1/5 ticks and is extremely liquid.

    You would just be delivered the cash though on the equity index futures
