Cash transaction

A transaction in which exchange is immediate in the form of cash, unlike a forward contract (which calls for future delivery of an asset at an agreed-upon price).

Cash Transaction

Any transaction that does not occur on the futures or forward market. That is, the participants in a cash transaction agree to buy and sell, respectively, at the present market value and to settle the transaction a few (usually three or fewer) days later. Technically, there is no difference between a cash transaction and a spot transaction, but the latter term is more common on the foreign exchange market.
