NOTICE: This report works much faster on SNW Enterprise by about 400-550 ms. SNW Elite or Pro users should consider skipping this report. Please notice that triggers are provided for the headline number, NOT the Core. Consider multi-report conflict resolution mode between the headline and the core numbers.

We will also have US Retail Sales coming out nearly at the same time, so perhaps it's best to trade EUR/CAD instead of USD/CAD this time.

If Canadian Retail Sales (M/M) comes at -0.3 or less ( -0.7 trigger), EUR/CAD should go up by about 30 pips. If it comes out at +1.0 or higher ( +0.6 trigger), EUR/CAD should go down by about 30 pips.

There are 14 estimates for Canadian Retail Sales. The median estimate is 0.4% and the average estimate is 0.32%.

It's hard to judge how well it performs because often it comes out with Canadian CPI reports as well. Nevertheless, it looks like this report usually performs quite well.

Please keep in mind that SNW Enterprise is MUCH faster than SNW Elite or Pro for Canadian reports. It's not recommended to trade this report with SNW Elite or SNW Pro.
