The budgeted daily trade most definitely affects the treasury. I was running about a $5 trillion dollar deficit because I had treasury to burn during a war. I tracked my treasury closely and saw that the "budgeted" trade most definitely was coming out of my treasury. Since "budgeted" trade is an integral part of the total budget it does affect how much either goes into or comes out of the treasury.
No it doesnt. Ive looked at this many many times, and ive never seen the budgeted daily trade have any effect on the treasury.
Ive run more tests on this than i can care to count and never once saw the treasury affected by the budgeted daily trade.
So unless youve found a bug,it doesnt.
In fact if you reread that sticky you will see that its(the budgeted daily trade) not supposed to be anything but a "projected sum",not an actual sum.
In fact if you go into the expense listings you will see NO minus that equals the Budgeted Daily trade figure.
What you will find is that the previous day trade is itemized in exacted detail in the Prevoius days trade window shown below.And that this figure is the one that affects your income and thereby your treasury.
Again, the budgeted daily trade is a projected sum NOT used in actual in the accounting of funds.
ONLY the previous days trade figure is used as such and its broken down and itemized accurately.

When I was burning up my big overstock of inventory to save money I was rather annoyed that I was running a large trillion dollar trade deficit and that was eating a $2.5 to $3 billion hole in my treasury every day even though I had no exports and needed none. I got that amount up to over $1.6 trillion which meant it was eating an even bigger hole in my treasury.
Ill assume you typoed here, as its hard to think you didnt mean "import" here.
Imports cost you money, not exports (which make you money)
Hence when you import something you have to pay for it (hence its a cost or expense), but when you export something someone pays you for it .
I assume you believe you have a case in which you see the budgeted daily trade affecting your treasury, Id like to see it if you have one.
Send me the save of this occuring.
