The trade deficit shrunk by  4.6% matching the lowest Econoday estimate.

What affect do you think today’s report will have on GDP estimates for the first quarter?

Econoday commented: “For GDP, these data are very positive and help offset not only January’s large trade deficit but also what’s evolving as a weak quarter for domestic consumer spending. For cross-border trade, this report is not upbeat, showing less demand for goods and services both here and abroad.”
