generally closing stock does not appear in the Trial Balance BECAUSE seperate account for stock is not opened in general ledger. closing stock represents the balance of goods unsold, out of opening stock and purchases.
The closing stock appears in the trial balance only when it is adjusted against PURCHAES by the entry:-
Closing Stock A/c .........Dr
