04.12.2015 14:38 U.S. trade deficit widens to $43.89 billion in October

The U.S. Commerce Department released the trade data on Friday. The U.S. trade deficit widened to $43.89 billion in October from a deficit of $42.64 billion in September. September's figure was revised down from a deficit of $40.81 billion.

 

Analysts had expected a trade deficit of $40.5 billion.

 

The rise of a deficit was driven by a drop in exports. A stronger U.S. dollar weighed on exports.

 

Exports fell by 1.4% in October, while imports decreased by 0.6%.
