General note of applicability.

imultaneous equations are invented to model supply demand equilibrium of commodities market. As such, it may involve an attempt to ignore the presence of financial markets. Indeed, to properly account for influence of the forward positions in the supply-demand equilibrium one would need to know a total volume of all forward positions on the market as well as weighted by volume of trading average of the previous forward prices. These variables are never observable. Also, forward contracts (futures) are generally traded through exchange with high volume. Spot market is usually OTC with much lower volume. Hence, it is an attempt to ignore something that cannot be ignored.

If you find yourself using simultaneous equations then check your motivation.
