Will the indicators bring chance to the USD bulls?
The United States will publish the indicators of retail sales and core retail sales on October 16, at 15:30 MT time.

Last time, the indicator of retail sales increased by the higher-than-expected 0.4%. Despite that, the level of core retail sales remained unchanged (vs. the forecast of +0.1%). The releases resulted in the mixed performance of the USD. Let’s see if they lead to a different outcome this time.
