2.) ASSET | A financial contract or physical object with value that is owned by an individual, company, or sovereign, which can be used to generate additional value or provide LIQUIDITY. Assets are credits to the balance sheet, and may include CASH, investments, ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE, LOANS granted, INVENTORY, real estate, plant and equipment, and GOODWILL. Assets are characterized by varying degrees of LIQUIDITY, and may be funded through DEBT or EQUITY. See also LIABILITY.

Futures Contract |  Agreement to buy or sell a commodity, financial instrument, or security, on a stated future date, at a specified price; 

Typically no actual delivery occurs as counter-contracts settle, or trade out the agreements.

 A futures contract is an obligation requiring completion of the transaction. Contrast to an option. An option is a purchased right to buy or sell an item. An option lapses if not exercised.
