The Takeaway:New Zealand Retail Sales (Q4) > +2.1% versus September Quarter > Total Sales and Sales Volumes on the Rise Since 2009 > NZDUSD Bullish

In December 2012, New Zealand retail sales volumes had their strongest quarterly increase in six years. According to the Statistics New Zealand, the volume of total retail sales rose +2.1 percent compared to the September 2012 quarter. Business statistics manager, Blair Cardon, stated “twelve of the 15 retail industries had higher sales volumes in the latest quarter.”

The industries that led this quarter’s increase were:

  • fuel retailing
  • hardware, building, and garden supplies retailing
  • motor vehicle and parts retailing.

This is the second large increase in a row for the hardware, building, and garden supplies industry. When looking at the longer-term picture, the trends for total sales volume and total sales value have been rising since 2009.
