Will the recovering US retail sales boost the USD?

The US retails sales are announced on Tuesday at 15:30 MT time.

Instruments to trade: EUR/USD; USD/JPY; GBP/USD; USD/CAD

April was a disastrous month for the US sales which sank more than 16%. The effect was even more hurtful as it was far worse than the expected -12%. May, however, is supposed to reflect the start of recovery. As unnoticeable as it usually goes, this indicator may be crucial this time in defining the stock markets mood as its been on a bullish trend alarmingly against raw data. On the other hand, if the sales indeed show that the economy is confidently picking up, that will definitely boost the USD and launch the stock market into another bullish wave. The expectation is at -10% hence whatever comes higher than this will be taken as good news.

  • If the retail sales reflect a confident recovery, the USD will rise.
  • If the sales are slow to recover, the USD will fall.
