US Retail Sales & Producer Prices
US retail sales & producer prices are the so-called pace indicators for the US economy. US retail sales data reflect the buying activity of the US citizens, while producer price index shows the changes in the prices of finished goods and services supplied to the market for sales. Higher costs tend to eat into real wages and hit consumers’ purchasing power. Heightened rates of consumer inflation may push the Fed to raise interest rates. All in all, higher readings of these indicators are good for the USD bulls.
