This report is especially significant for traders as it concerns the US dollar – the most traded currency in Forex market. Therefore, it will influence the whole market sentiment. Moreover, it's the primary measure of consumer spending, which, in turn, reveals the current economic activity. US retail sales rose by 7.5% in June of 2020, after it reached the record growth of 18.2% in May. Both times numbers beat analysts’ forecasts. Actually, the overall situation is getting better as more and more companies are reopening in the USA and the consumer spending is increasing. Also, it seems that the coronavirus spread has been taken under control as new cases continue declining.

  • If US retail sales are better than expected, the USD will surge.
  • If US retail sales are worse than expected, the USD will fall.
