We have seen some volatile numbers for retail sales. In December last year the report released a month late due to the government shutdown. Retail sales declined by a massive 1.2% while core sales came even lower at -1.8%. But they turned positive again in January growing by 0.2%, while core sales grew by 0.9% that month. In February they were expected to remain positive, but turned negative, both headline and core sales. For March, we saw a decent 1.6% jump in sales, but they returned to negative in April, declining by 0.2%. Although, last month the numbers for April were revised higher to 0.3% for core sales from -0.2% in the prelim reading which headline sales were revised to 0.5% from 0.1%. In June, both numbers showed a 0.5% increase for May, while the report released in July showed a 0.4% increase. For August, sales posted a decent increase of 0.4% while core sales fell flat at 0.0%, but they both declined in September. In October, they turned positive and in November sales are expected to increase further, by 0.4% for core sales and 0.5% for headline sales. Please follow us for live coverage in real time of the event by experienced analysts.
