Budget Statement

The United States probably recorded a government budget surplus of USD 95.0 billion in September, according to market expectations, after a deficit of USD 64.4 billion during the previous month. The latter represented a 50% decrease compared to August a year ago.

In August total receipts were at USD 211 billion (an 8.8% year-on-year increase), while total outlays amounted to USD 275 billion (a 14.9% year-on-year drop).

Spending for military active duty and retirement, veteran’s benefits, supplemental security income, and Medicare payments to Health Maintenance Organizations and prescription drug plans were accelerated into July, as August 1st 2015, the normal payment date, fell on a non-business day, according to the report by the US Treasury. The year-to-date budget deficit was at USD 211 billion.

A larger-than-projected budget surplus would have a moderate bullish effect on the greenback. The Financial Management Service is to publish the official figure at 18:00 GMT.
