International Trade Balance Widened to 9-Month High in October

International Trade Balance Widened to 9-Month High in October

It was the second straight month in which the United States trade gap widened, driven in part by goods imported from China of US$48.2 billion, an all-time high, bringing the U.S. trade deficit with that country to US$31.9 billion.

The U.S. worldwide trade deficit widened in October, growing 8.6% to $48.7 billion, according to the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis.

President Donald Trump views America's massive trade deficits as a sign of economic weakness.

Canada's merchandise trade deficit in October narrowed from the previous month to a seasonally adjusted 1.47 billion Canadian dollars ($1.16 billion), Statistics Canada said Tuesday.

Moreover, most of the deterioration in the trade balance was due to goods trade, as the advanced trade balance report released recently indicated. Exports of services grew 0.5% to $65.6 billion.

"The strength of the ISM manufacturing export orders index points to a clear upward trend in non-oil exports, so we're hoping that the October drop will prove to be a one-time fluke, but for now it looks as though net foreign trade will be a drag on Q4 GDP growth". Imports are up 6.5 percent the first 10 months of 2017.

Average prices for imported crude oil also hit a two-year high at US$47.26 a barrel, moving the value of crude imports up by US$1.5 billion.
