The term spot refers to the actual or physical commodity involved in trade, also known as a "cash" commodity.

The spot market is a market in which cash transactions occur. Products such as cattle, currencies or stocks are bought and sold for cash and delivered immediately [1] as opposed to an agreement to make a transaction some time in the future.[2]
