Buyer's Call

A contract between a buyer and seller whereby the parties agree to trade a commodity on the spot market (which the seller has) in exchange for a futures contract on the same commodity (which the buyer purchases). Alternatively, the buyer may simply agree to buy the commodity on the spot market at some point in the future. Buyer's calls are useful when a buyer needs something that the seller will not need until later.
