DescriptionMonthly Treasury Budget data tends to follow strong seasonal patterns which produce huge fluctuations in the deficit from month to month which does not imply much of long term budget trends. Since the data is not seasonally adjusted, one must compare year to year flows. April tends to be the month where the market regards this report since it has most tax inflows to the Treasury.
