Trade Balance - United States

The nominal gap between exported goods and services, and imported goods in the United States. It is a significant figure of the US Balance of Payments and its headline figure is characterized in billions of dollars. When a surplus occurs it is usually detected by a positive Trade Balance in which exports exceed imports. Although it is a rather influential measurement, the Trade Balance's lack of promptness in its release is a contributing factor in diminishing this measurement's impact in the market.
