Last time the headline retail sales increased by a lower-than-expected level of 0.5% (vs. the forecast of +0.7%). At the same time, the core indicator came out in line with the expectations. It showed an increase of 0.5%. As a result, the USD failed to rise on these indicators. Will the release bring positive momentum to the USD this time?
