UK: Retail sales in the limelight today - TDS

FXStreet (Delhi) – Prashant Newnaha, Rates Strategist at TD Securities, suggests that the UK markets will be focusing on the release of retail sales data for today’s session.

Key Quotes

“September’s retail sales number was boosted significantly by a combination of the inclusion of August’s Bank Holiday in the September sample, coupled with increased activity around the rugby World Cup.

“We see upside risks to the market consensus of –0.5% m/m, with TD expecting a reading of 0.7% m/m, but note that uncertainty remains elevated around this release owing to special factors.”
