Traders Await US Retail Sales
What will happen?
US Retail Sales will be out on November 16 at 15:30 MetaTrader time (GMT+2). If you open the economic calendar, you will notice that there are two versions of this indicator: Core Retail Sales and Retail Sales. What is the difference? The core release excludes auto sales due to their high volatility.
Why is it important?
Retail sales are the primary measure of consumer spending, which accounts for the majority of overall economic activity. Last month, both reports were greater than expected. As a result, USD/JPY rocketed by 150 points!
