‘Positions’ typically refers to the quantity of a specific commodity that a producer or trader holds in their portfolio, whether bought, or sold or the inventory at a given point in time. These positions can be long (bought, inventory) or short (sold), reflecting the direction of the market exposure.

Commodity producers and traders closely monitor their positions to assess their risk exposure, make informed trading decisions, and implement effective risk management strategies.
