Commodity Market News

Commodity markets, as we are aware, are more a function of demand and supply. Unlike equities and debt, the prices of commodities are directly impacted by the buy side and the sell side. If you take any of the key commodities like bullion, energy, industrial metals or even agri products; the key trigger for their prices is the forces of demand and supply. But price alone can be deceptive. What really matters is whether the price trend is sustainable or ephemeral. How do you judge that? One of the ways to judge the sustainability of the price movement or price trend is through the advance/decline ratio.

What exactly do we understand by Advance/Decline ratio of commodities…?

There are different ways to look at advance/declines when it comes to commodities. The first approach is a static approach wherein you look at different sub-categories of a particular commodity and measure how many of them advanced and how many of them declined on a periodic basis. This is a static analysis and gives you a quick idea of how commodities within a category are performing. For example, the overall Advance/decline ratio for bullion can be understood as an aggregate of the A/D for gold, silver, platinum, palladium etc. Similarly, the A/D ratio for industrial metals can be understood as an aggregate of specific metals like copper, zinc, nickel, manganese etc. The A/D ratio for energy will be a mix of crude oil and natural gas.
The other way of approaching A/D ratio is on a dynamic basis. For each of the sub-categories of commodities, you can calculate the A/D ratio over a period of time and plot on a time graph. This data is useful in understanding the trends in A/D. The price trend typically gets more pronounced when it is viewed in tandem with the A/D trend as the A/D trend provides an affirmation of the price trend or highlights if the trend is weak and unsustainable.
