Trade Balance in USA

United States Trade Balance | Economic News & Forecasts

USA - Trade Balance

Economic growth likely cooled further in the third quarter. Cracks began to show in private consumption: Retail sales unexpectedly shrank in September and consumer confidence tumbled, while payroll gains slowed and wage growth weakened in the same month. Moreover, ongoing uncertainty over trade policies and the global growth slowdown likely limited the rebound in business fixed investment from Q2’s contraction, while inventory contributions to GDP growth appeared to moderate, given falling imports and the General Motors strike. Regarding the trade front, the U.S. and China allegedly reached a partial trade deal. However, many panelists remain pessimistic that the countries will arrive at a full agreement in the near-term. In other news, in late September Congress passed a stopgap spending bill, averting a government shutdown and extending federal spending through 21 November.
