We just mentioned the surprise trade deficit posted by Australia.
Here’s an even more interesting stat. Gold sales collapsed.
In trend terms, exports of non-monetary gold fell $64m (5%) to $1,329m.
In seasonally adjusted terms, exports of non-monetary gold fell $1,070m (56%) to $856m.
Non-monetary gold, btw, just means gold not held by monetary authorities.
