USD Current Account Balance


The Current Account released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis is the sum of the balance of trade (exports minus imports of goods and services), net factor income (such as interest and dividends) and net transfer payments (such as foreign aid). The data can have a visible affect on the USD because foreigners must buy the domestic currency to pay for the nation's exports. The Current Account is one of the three components that compile a country's Balance of Payments: Financial Account, Capital Account and Current Account.
