Trade Balance release is due at 01:50 (GMT+2) in Japan. It is predicted that the balance deficit will decrease to –50B JPY in September from –438B a month earlier. The indicator shows the difference between export and import. A positive value is formed in case of excess of exports and indicates a surplus of balance. A negative value indicates a deficit in the balance and signals that imports exceed exports. A high value strengthens the JPY, as low one weakens it.
