    The cash market refers to the acctual stock market. Most cash markets have a Futures market that mirrors the cash market.
    So, if you wanted to trade the Dow Jones Index for example then you would trade a futures contract on the popular Dow Jones Futures market (e-mini) which is $5.00 per point .
