Cash and Carry Transaction

Cash and Carry Transaction
A type of transaction in the futures market in which the cash or spot price of a commodity is below the futures contract price. Cash and carry transactions are considered arbitrage transactions.

The carrying costs in a cash and carry transaction are not deductible if the underlying commodity or security is part of a balanced position. These costs are instead capitalized and added to the basis.
