Current account - balance of payments - Eurozone

Rule of thumb

Negative value of the balance of payments (deficit) shows that a country is spending more than it is earning from transactions with other countries

 

A surplus shows that a country is earning more than it is spending

The Current account records all economic transactions between resident and nonresident entities during a given period.

 

It determines the exposure of an economy to the rest of the world. Current account includes the following components: trade in goods (which covers general merchandise, goods for processing, and others); trade in services (transport services performed by  euro zone residents for non- euro zone residents, or vice-versa, movement of goods, and others); income (compensation of employees paid to nonresident workers or received from non-resident employers, and investment income accrued on external financial assets and liabilities); current transfers (includes general government current transfers, payments of current taxes on income and wealth, and other payments). Also, very important is the financial account which explains how the current account is financed.

 

The balance of payments registers the value of credits (exports) and debits (imports). A negative balance (deficit) shows that a country is spending more than it is earning from transactions with other countries.

 

Because current account tracks the trade balance (i.e. inflows and outflows) to/from the  eurozone, a positive value (surplus) indicates that the capital is flowing to the  eurozone. This is a sign of the growing business interest in the  euro zone from foreign investors and, strengthens the currency leading to its appreciation.

 

A negative value (deficit) indicates that there is more capital leaving the  euro zone than there is an inflow. This generates a shift of foreign capital from the  euro zone, which leads to the depreciation of the currency (weakening).

 

Periodicity of publication

Eurostat publishes the 1st release of the balance of payments on the first days of the following quarter after the reference quarter.

14.12.2015 | Eurozóna: Vystoupení Draghiho – čekají se smíšené komentáře

ECB stále praktikuje silnou monetární expanzi. Komentáře ale již nevypadají jednoznačně ve směru posílení monetární expanze. Komentáře Draghiho zřejmě naváží na jeho poslední smíšené vystoupení – varování před nízkou inflací s reflexí ekonomického posílení.
