BUENOS AIRES Dec 19 (Reuters) - Argentina's trade surplus narrowed 34 percent in November from the same month a year earlier to $461 million, the government said on Friday, undershooting market expectations.

The median forecast in a Reuters poll of seven analysts was for a surplus of $650 million.
