CAUTION: Australia doesn't have a formal news lock-up process for their economic news releases (except for Interest Rate Statements), and their method to release the data is much less efficient than in other countries. This leads to some variations in news providers receiving the data in a timely manner. Although we subscribe to multiple news providers there is always a possibility to have that report leaked before major news providers get it into their system. For that reason I don't recommend trading big volumes on this report as this may or may not work. Watch out for pre-release price action and use panic stop if you see price volatility right before the report.

If the Australian Retail Sales (M/M) comes out at 0.3 or more negative ( -0.7 trigger), AUD/USD should go down by about 30 pips. If it comes out at 1.1 or higher ( +0.7 trigger), AUD/USD should go up by about 30 pips.

Based on 26 estimates, median estimate is 0.4% and the average estimate is 0.36%.

One standard deviation is +/- 0.11%, down from +/- 0.37% last month.
