The euro zone's adjusted current account surplus narrowed slightly in March but continued to hover near all-time highs, data from the European Central Bank showed today. 

The seasonally and working-day adjusted surplus eased to €34.1 billion from €37.8 billion a month earlier, when it was at highest level on record for the euro zone. 

The unadjusted data showed the surplus surging to €44.8 billion from €27.8 billion as the surplus from goods trade and services both rose sharply. 

For the latest 12 months, the euro zone's surplus increased to 3.4% of gross domestic product from 3.3% a year earlier.
