Spot Price

Price applying to purchase or sale of an asset with immediate (spot) settlement. In practice, immediate usually means that the cash and the asset change hands within 1-3 business days.

This is in contrast to forward price or futures price, which applies to settlement at a certain time in the future.

In options trading, the term spot price is sometimes used as synonym for underlying price.
