trade balance

Archives

Trade balance reports show the difference between the value of the goods and services exported by the USA and the value of the goods and services imported by the USA. It is an important fundamental indicator because the country is the world’s largest economy and its amount of trade is huge. Any rise of imports without a similar rise of exports leads to a deficit, which results in a bigger supply of the USD, which in the longer term, leads to currency depreciation. The data is prepared monthly by the US Census Bureau and the US Bureau of Economic Analysis and is released 35 days after the month ends. The posts below contain our reports on the trade balance deficit/surplus values released to the public since 2007.
