For 2011, China's trade surplus clocks in at $155B, down 14.5% from 2010, giving more ammo to Beijing which is making noises about slowing down or even halting the yuan's appreciation against the dollar. The yuan rose 4.7% against the greenback in 2011, it's strongest move in memory. Don't expect a repeat this year.
