The difference between exports and imports of Eurozone goods and services. The Trade Balance is one of the biggest components of Europe 's Balance of Payment, and thus gives valuable insight into pressures on the value of the Euro.

A negative Trade Balance figure (deficit) indicates that imports are greater than imports. When exports are greater than imports, the Eurozone experiences a trade surplus. Trade surpluses indicate that funds are coming into Europe in exchange for exported goods and services. Because such exported goods are usually purchased with Euros, trade surpluses typically indicates that currency is flowing into the Eurozone. Such currency inflows may lead to a natural appreciation of the Euro, unless countered by similar capital outflows. At a bare minimum, surpluses will buoy the value of the currency.

There are a number of factors that work to diminish the market impact of Eurozone Balance of Trade. The report is not very timely, released fifty days after the reporting period. In addition, developments in many of the Trade Balance's components are typically well anticipated. Lastly, since the report reflects data for a specific reporting month, any significant changes in the Trade Balance should plausibly have been already felt during that month and not during the release of data. Despite these considerations, and because of the overall significance of Trade Balance data, the release has historically been one of the more important reports out of Europe .

The headline figure for trade balance is expressed in millions of Euros, and usually accompanied by the year-on-year percentage change.

Capacity utilization rate is a metric which is used to compute the rate at which probable output levels are being met or used. The output is displayed as a percentage and it can give a proper insight into the general negligence that the organization is at a point of time. Capacity utilization rate is also called as operating rate. The capacity utilization rate provides with the value of production capacity which is actually being utilized over a specified period, and by providing the output in percentages, it can provide you a clearer idea of the total utilization of resources and how better the production company can fare in case the total output is increased without it affecting the cost of production to the company. Although capacity utilization rate is important for several business decisions, it is still not enough to provide with the actual feedback necessary for economic and market conditions at a given particular time. The decrease in the capacity utilization rate percentage denotes an economic slowdown, an increase shows economic expansion
