Retail sales may strengthen the USD

Retail sales may strengthen the USD

The USA will publish retail sales and core retail sales on November 17, at 15:30 MT time.

Instruments to trade: EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD

In general, the indicators of retail sales demonstrate a change in the total value of sales by consumers and businesses. They help to understand current consumer demand and suggest whether the economy is heading towards expansion or contraction. Traders take into account not only the headline indicator but also the core one. The latter is calculated without volatile automobile sales, making figures more accurate. Based on the data published, we may propose the further destiny of the USD.  Last time, both headline (+1.9%) and core (1.5%) indicators outperformed the forecasts. This news pushed the US dollar higher in a short term.

  • If the indicators are higher than the forecasts, the USD will go up;
  • In case of an alternative scenario, the USD will fall.
