Can anyone explain what is inventory in commodity market?

please give a breif about it

First let’s understand what Inventory means.

Inventory means the entire stock of a business, including materials, components, work in progress, and finished product.

We all know that markets run based on demand and supply.
The law of demand and supply states that when the demand is higher, the prices increase and vice versa.
When demand increases, the supply decreases automatically.

So now when you consider the commodity market, the demand and supply ratio value are derived with the help of Inventory. The inventory would give complete details of how much of that particular commodity is available for supply and how much is needed for consumption.

I hope this answers your question!

Happy Investing! Cheers!

Commodity prices fluctuate based on a basic factor named supply and demand. Demand comes from consumers like the public, industries, etc. Supply belongs to the producer like mine owner, farmer. You have different indicators to measure both . Developed nations keep exact data of their commodity production in both agriculture and non-agriculture. stock data related to Crude oil , N Gas, Non-ferrous metals are published daily or weekly by monitoring agencies that will give the supply side situation of the commodity. Data analysis of new-arrivals non sold stocks, canceled stocks can be used to identify the supply-demand situation and to find the price direction.
