We have seen some volatile numbers in the second half for retail sales. They increased by 0.6% in July. But in August, retail sales slowed their growth as the report released in September showed. Retail sales were expected to have grown by 0.5% in August, but they only grew by 0.3%, while core retail sales were expected at 0.5% but missed expectations and came at 0.1%. September was a softer month as sales declined by 0.1%. Although in October, retail sales jumped 0.8% higher which was revised to 1.0% later. In November that included the Black Friday, retail sales only grew by 0.2%. Please follow us for live coverage in real time of the event by experienced analysts.

The Buck lost around 15 pips on the headline number, but is reversing back up now since the control group was solid.

If EU/USD will be volatile,does it mean that go Bulish or Bearish?

Volatile means there will be action, but it may be on both sides, such as the small jump in EUR/USD, which is now reversing back down.
