This paper is interested to present an alternative trade indicator that is called “The Trade Mass (Т)”. The main objective to build the trade mass (Т) is to observe the international trade behavior of any country from a different graphical perspective. Subsequently, the same paper is interested to evaluate the trade creation and trade diversion effect by the application of the trade expansion coefficient (TEC) and the uses of 3-dimensional graphical modeling.
