Canada's merchandise trade deficit totalled $2.8 billion in May, widening from a $1.9 billion deficit in April

Canada's merchandise trade deficit with the world totalled $2.8 billion in May, widening from a $1.9 billion deficit in April. Imports rose 1.7%, mainly on higher imports of aircraft, while exports edged down 0.1%.

Imports rose 1.7% in May to $51.1 billion, with 8 of 11 product sections increasing. Imports of aircraft and other transportation equipment as well as energy products contributed the most to the increase in May. Year over year, total imports were up 3.5%.

Total exports edged down 0.1% to $48.3 billion in May, mainly due to lower exports of motor vehicles and parts as well as metal ores and non-metallic minerals. These declines were largely offset by higher exports of aircraft and other transportation equipment and parts, as well as forestry products and building and packaging materials. Year over year, total exports were essentially unchanged.

Year-to-date, the goods and services deficit increased $17.9 billion, or 7.9 percent, from the same period in 2017. Exports increased $84.5 billion or 8.8 percent. Imports increased $102.4 billion or 8.6 percent.

UK house prices in the three months to June were 1.8% higher than the same period a year earlier
  • House prices in the three months to June were 1.8% higher than the same period a year earlier; marginally lower than the 1.9% annual growth in May

  • In the latest quarter (April-June) prices were 0.7% lower than in the preceding three months (January-March 2018), though this figure appears to be a symptom of the monthly volatility in the data with the particularly weak April number in between two fairly strong months

  • On a monthly basis, prices rose by 0.3% in June to £225,654

"House prices continue to remain broadly flat, with the annual rate of growth marginally slowing from 1.9% in May to 1.8% in June. "Activity levels, like house price growth, have softened compared with the final months of last year. Mortgage approvals have been in the low range of 63,000 to 67,000 since the start of the year, whilst home sales have remained flat so far this year. This is in contrast to the continuing strength of the UK jobs market with job creation still strong and pressure on household finances easing as real income growth edges up".
