Resource description

Commodity futures spreads, often simply called spreads, are one of several basic strategies that futures traders use to make a profit. (The term is also used generally to describe the difference between an asking price and a bid on securities and other financial instruments.) In its simplest form, a futures spread takes place when a trader buys one futures contract while simultaneously selling another, in hopes of making a profit through a favorable difference in prices during the coming weeks or months.
