Recent History Of This Indicator
Exports of goods were up in May and imports of goods were down and further improvement, helped by low oil prices, is expected in June with the consensus at a $65.0 billion deficit vs May's $67.5 billion. June's total will be an input into second-quarter GDP and will be closely watched. Advance data for wholesale and retail inventories in June, which are also GDP inputs, will also be released with this report.

Definition
The Census Bureau is now publishing an advance report on U.S. international trade in goods. The Bureau of Economic Analysis will incorporate these data into its estimates of exports and imports for the advance GDP estimates. This is expected to reduce the size of revisions to GDP growth in the second estimates.  Why Investors Care
