Futures market

Futures transactions are transactions in which the price, number and delivery date of the traded securities are agreed when the transaction is concluded but delivery and payment take place at a future time. Usually the term "futures transaction" is used if the time period is three days or more. These characteristics ensure a clear demarcation to the spot market.
