The balance of trade is the difference between imported and exported during the previous month. When the number is positive, that means that more goods were exported than imported. As a result, a higher indicator is better for domestic currency.
The last release showed a bigger level of imports than in April. The balance of trade reached -6.7 billion pounds. One of the reasons behind this fact is the lockdown in the UK.
- If the actual figures of trade balance are greater than the forecasts, the British pound will go up.
- If the actual figures of trade balance are lower than the forecasts, the British pound will go down.
