What factors affect the price of the commodities?

Stock and Inventories

Some products can be affected by external factors which in turn will affect the stock and inventories. Weather, pandemics, staff issues, political or economic factors which can affect taxes, laws and government etc.

Geopolitical situations

Regions with a big uncertainty in the political situation can affect the commodities if they are produced in these regions.

Currency strength

If a commodity is strongly connected to a currency, a change in this currency can affect the price of the commodity. Monitoring these connections are important when trading commodities.

Nature

The nature affects the commodity prices greatly, especially the soft commodities as agricultural products are highly affected by weather. Favourable weather may result in a a greater supply of a commodity than expected, which makes the price drop. Cold weather can result in an increased demand for energy products, which in turn increases the prices.

Liquidity

When trading commodities one of the most important factors to consider is liquidity. A high liquidity means there is a high supply and demand, this is linked to what ease a trader can sell and buy the commodity he or she is trading. A more liquid market are usually considered to have less risk, as the chances that someone is willing to take the other position are higher. If a demand for a commodity goes up, so will the price and vice versa. Additionally, if there is a drop in the supply, the price will go up. If there is an increase in supply, the price will go down.

Economic Wealth & Inflation

The wealth of a country can also play a role in the price of a commodity. If a country is a major producer or buyer of a commodity, the wealth of the country can affect the price of the commodity as the purchasing power of the population is directly related to this.A commodity price usually changes in correspondence with inflation.
