A commodity traded on the current market. Spot commodities involve straightforward transactions; there is a buyer and a seller and the seller makes delivery of the commodity promptly when the transaction is settled. A spot commodity differs from a futures transaction, in which the buyer and seller agree to exchange the commodity at some point in the future.
