Spot trade

The purchase and sale of a foreign currency, commodity, or other item for immediate delivery.

Spot Trade

A trade on any commodity or contract for immediate delivery. The most common spot trade is a trade on a foreign exchange contract. If one is trading a physical commodity, the buyer receives delivery of the underlying goods and compensates the seller immediately. If a spot trade is not settled immediately, the counterparty responsible is expected to compensate the other. Spot trades contrast with futures trades.
