THE TAKEAWAY: [US January business inventories rose by the most since May 2011] > [Businesses increase goods on hand to meet the picking up demand] > [USD/CAD Bullish]

U.S. business inventories in January rose by the most since 2011 and beat the forecast as businesses are restocking with a picking up in consumer demand. The Commerce Department reported in Washington today that stockpiles increased 1.0 percent in January, following anupwardly revised 0.3 percent gain in previous month. The median forecast of 47 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had projected a 0.5 percent increase in inventories. Meanwhile, sales fell0.3 percent after a gain of 0.1 percent in December.

In specific, inventories in Wholesalers accounting for about 30 percent of all business inventories rose 1.2 percent in January, while retailers’ stockpiles increased 1.5 percent matching gain in sales. The readings indicate that companies replenished warehouses and shelves in line with improving demand.Another report from the Commerce Department showed that US February retail sales jumped by the most in five months. Both reports add more signs to the moderate recovery in U.S. with increasing firmness.
