Consensus Outlook
With net exports no weaker than the fourth quarter, the current account deficit is expected to hold little changed in the first quarter. Econoday's consensus is calling for a $129.0 billion deficit vs the fourth quarter's $128.2 billion. As a percentage of GDP, the current account deficit was 2.6 percent in the fourth quarter.

Definition
The current account measures the United States' international trade balance in goods, services, and unilateral transfers on a quarterly basis. Readings in this report track trends in cross-border trade.  Why Investors Care
