What’s the difference between spot and futures prices?

The spot price is the current market price of an instrument, applicable when looking to buy or sell immediately.

The futures price is the price of an instrument at some point in the future. Futures contracts allow you to delay payment and delivery, which happen on predetermined dates, enabling you to speculate on the possible future price of an instrument. Futures are also often used for hedging.
