The index growth helps to strengthen the national currency.

    Trade Balance

    Index: tracking.
    The report details all international trade. The indicator is the difference between exports and imports.

    Market Impact:
    High.
    Export always has to be analyzed first, since it directly affects the economic growth. Import images the domestic demand for products and has an influence over the trade balance and the exchange rate. It corrects revenue from import in the national currency. The positive trade balance (exports more than imports) or decrease of the negative trade balance – has a positive influence over the rate of the national currency. In case of the import is more than exports, the opposite effect occurs. The market will react to the trade balance indicator, depending on as the results will be important to the economy at the moment. Indicator’s fluctuations help to forecast the GDP, as far as import is sourced from GDP and export is added. The decrease of the trade deficit strengthens the national currency due to higher export.
