USD Backs Away from Edge after Surprsingly Strong Retail Sales

USD Backs Away from Edge after Surprsingly Strong Retail Sales

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Talking Points:

- US Advance Retail Sales beat expectations handily – both current and prior beat.

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

- EURUSD retreats to $1.2424 after report.

November US Advance Retail Sales beat the Bloomberg News consesus forecast handily, helping buffer the US Dollar from deteriorating technical conditions. The headline reading of +0.7% cruised by expecations of +0.4%, with the prior reading revised higher as well. With US labor market growth accelerating, signs that consumption is increasing – the largest component of GDP, accounting for nearly 70% of the headline figure – only bolster the US Dollar’s fundamental stand headed into 2015.

Secondary labor market data this morning was solid as well. US Initial Jobless Claims edged lower by -3K to 294K, holding below the four-week average of 299.3K. In recent months, sub-300K claims have correlated with NFP readings above +200K; if consumption trends remain elevated, another strong month of payroll gains may be ahead for December.

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

- USD Advance Retail Sales (NOV): +0.7% versus +0.4% exp, from +0.5% (revised higher from +0.3%) (m/m).

- USD Retail Sales Ex Auto (NOV): +0.5% versus +0.1% exp, from +0.4% (revised higher from 0.3%) (m/m).

- USD Retail Sales Ex Auto and Gas (NOV): +0.6% versus +0.5% exp, from +0.7% (revised higher from +0.6%) (m/m).

- USD Retail Sales Control Group (NOV): +0.6% versus +0.5% estimated, from +0.5% (m/m).

- USD Initial Jobless Claims (DEC 6): 294K versus 297K expected unch.

- USD Continuing Claims (NOV 29): 2514K versus 2344K expected, from 2372K (revised higher from 2362K).
