German Trade Balance
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 slated for a trade surplus of €20.4B, but the result was positive, as the trade surplus was €23.6B.
The report added that “foreign trade balance showed a record surplus of 26.0 billion euros in March 2016. In March 2015, the surplus amounted to 23.0 billion euros. In calendar and seasonally adjusted terms, the foreign trade balance recorded a surplus of 23.6 billion euros in March 2016”.
Overall, the Euro has almost no reason to trade higher, and this is the reason why it may continue to trade down.
