FXstreet.com (Barcelona) - Euro Zone´s current account has posted a surplus based on gains on goods and services trade, which were partially offset by a deficit in current transfers, according to the latest report by the European Central Bank.

August's current account surplus remained unchanged at 3.8 billion euro from July's upwardly revised reading, initially estimated at 1.7 billion euro surplus.

The reasons of these figures are the surpluses posted in goods trade; 7.0 billion, and the 3.8 billion surplus in services transfers, on the negative side, the 6.7 billion deficit in services trade.

The 12-month cumulated, working day-adjusted current account up to August 2007 recorded a surplus of EUR 23.4 billion, compared with a deficit of EUR 18.6 billion a year earlier.
