Producer Price Index Flatten,Trade Deficit Shrunk; USD Rally to be Short-Lived

THE TAKEAWAY:U.S. March Producer Price Index Flat, February Trade Deficit Narrowed > Moderated Inflationary Pressure on Production Line>USD Rally to be Short-Lived

The report issued by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics today showed a moderated inflationary pressure on production line in March since a drop in gasoline costs offset rising food prices. The seasonally adjusted Producer Price Index for finished goods unexpectedly flat in March after jumping 0.4 percent in February and advancing 0.1 percent in January. Meanwhile, economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had anticipated a rise of 0.1 percent. From a year earlier, wholesale prices edged down 2.8 percent, lower than 3.1 percent estimated.

In contrast, the less volatile index, excluding food and energy, rose 0.3 percent last month amid consensus forecast of merely 0.2 percent increase, marking the fifth consecutive monthly gain. The gain was mainly attributable for light motor trucks prices, which rebounded 0.7 percent after falling 0.4 percent in February. On a yearly basis, the so-called core producer price index surged 2.9 percent, above 2.8 percent initially projected.

The separated report released by the Commerce Department at the same time revealed that trade deficit narrowed 12 percent to $46 billion in February, the smallest since October. The print is better than expected as economists called for an imbalance of $51.8 billion.February’s deficit was revised lower to $52.5 billion from $52.6 billion initially reported.

The U.S. trade gap shrank in February as imports of goods and services slipped more than exports. December imports declined $6.3billion to $227.2 billion, reflecting widespread drop in all major goods categories, led by a decrease in consumer good and industrial supplies. Meanwhile, exports slightly fell $0.6 billion $181.2 billion as U.S. firms sold less automotive vehicles, consumer goods and foods, feeds and beverages to international market.
