  • Current account balance €16.9 billion vs €21.8 billion expected
  • Prior €28.2 billion

  • Prior +0.1%; revised to +0.4%
  • Imports -4.7% vs -1.9% m/m expected
  • Prior -0.1%
The report is a little bit mixed as the non-seasonally adjusted readings show a decline in exports, leading to the narrower trade surplus as per the headline. But the seasonally adjusted reading shows a growth of 1.4% m/m, so that's something to take note of.
