World Trade’s Slippage About To Become a Slide

Global 722 Trade Balance 657

Global trade slipped for a second month in January with a 0.1% decline versus a year earlier compared to a 1.8% drop in December. A worse decline was averted because of the earlier lunar new year, though a 4.1% slide in emerging Asian exports shows a wider slowdown in activity. February has likely seen more of the same, with government data indicating a 4.7% slide in Chinese exports in January and February combined echoed. U.S. exports have also likely to have slowed with data from eight seaports showing a 10.2% year over year decline in outbound containerized freight activity.
