Investing terminology can get confusing, and foreign exchange transactions don’t make things any easier. You may often hear the terms “spot” and “future” thrown around effortlessly if you watch investment news shows or read articles on the internet, and understanding what the terms really mean will make your life a whole lot easier.

Dear Spot markets and futures markets are terms that refer to whether the assets (in the physical assets markets) are bought or sold for ‘on-the-spot’ delivery (literally, within a few days) or for delivery at some future date, such as six months or a year into the future. Futures , are a standardized, transferable, exchange-traded contract that requires delivery of a commodity, bond, currency, or stock index, at a specified price, on a specified future date.

When you think of the word "spot", think of "on the spot" or immediate. The spot rate of a commodity, currency or security is the quote given for a transaction’s immediate settlement, with the settlement date usually taking place a couple of days after a trade is executed.

In a spot market, commodities are physically bought or sold usually on a negotiable basis resulting in delivery. While in the futures markets, commodities can be bought or sold irrespective of the physical possession of the underlying commodity. The futures market trades in standardized contractual agreements of the underlying asset with specific quality, quantity, and mode of delivery whose settlement is guaranteed by regulated commodity exchanges.
