The futures market originated in the commodities industry. It was farmers, miners and oil producers who wanted to manage the risk of not knowing the price they would get for their product in the future. This gave birth to the futures contract.

Essentially, the seller of a futures contract would agree to sell a fixed quantity of a certain commodity on a particular day in the future to whoever wanted to buy the contract. The price of this contract would depend on the demand from buyers, as well as the supply from other sellers.

In a similar way, the buyer of the futures contract would agree on a fixed price to buy the underlying commodity from the seller on the expiration date of the contract.
