U.S. Retail Sales & Core Retail Sales

Today U.S. has schedule to release Retail Sales, Core Retail Sales and Empire State Manufacturing Index data at 1330 GMT/1900 IST. As all the key ecconomic Indicators are releaseing at the same time and in case of mixed data release, U.S. dollar likely to face high volatility against major peers.

Let’s take in to consideration the past U.S. Retail Sales data results and forecast the likely movement in gold only. Retail Sales are the earliest and broadest look at vital consumer spending data. It’s the primary gauge of consumer spending, which accounts for the majority of overall economic activity.
