Futures Contract

A long-term contract on an underlying commodity. Futures commodities usually entail grains, precious metals such as gold, or interest-rate instruments such as bonds.

 It is a speculative form of trading used by investment professionals or experienced, risk-oriented investors where buyers and sellers lock in a price for later delivery.
