Gold Falls Noticeably Ahead of U.S. Trade Balance Data, $9+ Volatility Likely; June 08, 2021

U.S. Trade Balance

Today’s U.S. calendar is almost empty only one economic indicator has scheduled and that is U.S. Trade Balance data. Export demand and currency demand are directly linked because foreigners must buy the domestic currency to pay for the nation’s exports. Export demand also impacts production and prices at domestic manufacturers. The goods portion has a muted impact because it’s a duplicate of the Goods Trade Balance data released about 5 days earlier. A positive number indicates that more goods and services were exported than imported.
