current account balance

Archives

Current account balance is a macroeconomic indicator of medium importance used in fundamental analysis. It is a sum of trade balance, net income on investments abroad, and net current transfers. A current account surplus usually increases demand for the country’s currency. A current account deficit tends to make the currency less attractive. The current account balance is reported quarterly by the US Bureau of Economic Analysis, about two and a half months after the quarter ends.
