Trade balance – Mixed signals in October as supply chain issues remain

  • October’s trade balance posted a US$2,701 million deficit. Exports grew 0.2% m/m, with imports at +1.1%

  • The report suggests that supply shocks prevail, impacting flows. In addition, data might be skewed by global inflation

  • Despite modest results, we believe signals point to a recovery in activity in 4Q21, at least from consumption
