GBP/USD Fell to 1.2780 as UK Retail Sales Fell to -1.8% in March

Posted by Chris Advincula on Apr 21, 2017 6:58:47 AM

(April 21 Friday) The U.K.. Retail Sales fell to -1.8% in March versus the median forecast of -0.3% compared to +1.7% in February. Sales fell to its largest decline in seven years in the first quarter as the accelerating inflation took a toll in the recent economic data and may prompt the Bank of England to keep interest rates at a record low for a longer term. The -1.8% contraction pushed the 1st quarter sales down by 1.4%, the lowest quarterly outcome since the 1st quarter of 2010, compounded by the ongoing Bexit implications as well.
