Cash Price

In trading, the terms cash price and spot price refer to the price you pay for a product traded on a cash market at any given time.

The term is used to distinguish between the current market price of an investment and the price of futures based on the same investment – which may be higher or lower than the cash price depending on how investors expect the market to develop.
