Retail sales report may push CAD down

Retail sales report may push CAD down

The Canadian core retail sales will be announced on Tuesday at 15:30 MT time.

Instruments to trade: USD/CAD, CAD/JPY, CAD/CHF

This indicator reveals the change in the total value of sales at the retail level, excluding automobiles. Why without auto sales? They are volatile and can misrepresent the trend. The core retail sales report is a more relevant measure of the spending dynamic.

We must say that Canada as one of the world’s largest oil exporters has been already under pressure because of extremely low oil price these days. In addition, investors are now more cautious and risk-averse. As a result, safe-haven currencies are more favorable, leaving aside the Canadian dollar.

Anyway, after the release of the retail sales’ data we should be ready to catch the market momentum and react immediately. Pay attention to the CAD/JPY pair as it’s really sensitive to the market changes and you could gain from it in a short term.

If the indicator is greater than expected, it will push the Canadian dollar up, otherwise – down.
