Spot Market

The spot market is a public water market in which water licences are traded for immediate delivery of water. Temporary and permanent licences are traded on the spot market, and determine the duration of time a buyer has access to water associated with a specific licence – for the water season or indefinitely.

Forward Market

A forward water market is a central exchange where people can trade water licences and associated water volumes; that is, a contract to buy specific quantities of water at a specified price with delivery set at a specified time in the future.
