Strong US Advanced Retail Sales Data Fuels More Dollar Strength

Strong US Advanced Retail Sales Data Fuels More Dollar Strength

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Tyler Amend,

Talking Points:

- US Advance Retail Sales beat expectations modestly.

- Core consumption figure beats too, with positive revisions to priors.

- EURUSD falls to $1.2398 after report.

October US Advance Retail Sales beat analyst estimates of +0.2% with a headline reading of +0.3% today, helping propel the USDOLLAR Index to fresh 2014 highs. This is a large step up from the prior reading of -0.3% and, for now, assuages any lingering fears about the US economy joining much of the developed world in a period of slowing growth.

Here’s a summary of the data this morning that contributed to US Dollar price action:

- USD Advance Retail Sales (OCT): +0.3% versus +0.2% exp, from -0.3% (m/m).

- USD Retail Sales Ex Auto (OCT): +0.3% versus +0.2% exp, from -0.2% (revised to 0.0%) (m/m).

- USD Retail Sales Ex Auto and Gas (OCT): +0.6% versus +0.4% exp, from -0.1% (revised to 0.1%).

- USD Retail Sales Control Group (OCT): +0.5% versus +0.4% estimated, from -0.2% (revised to 0.0%).
