German Trade Balance
Today, the German Trade Balance, which is a balance between exports and imports of total goods and services was released by the Statistisches Bundesamt Deutschland. The forecast was lined up for a trade surplus of €20.0B in October 2015, compared with the preceding month. However, the outcome was positive, as the trade surplus came in at €20.8B.
However, both imports and exports were on the negative side. The report stated that “German exports increased by 3.3% and imports by 3.0% in October 2015 year on year. Compared with September 2015, exports were down by 1.2% and imports by 3.4% in calendar and seasonally adjusted terms”.
The EURUSD pair is under bullish pressure currently, but no doubt 1.0950 holds the key for more gains in the near term.
