US Core Retail Sales is going to be a high impact release for the USD. Considering the miss in last Nonfarm Payroll Report, today’s release could be on the low side, therefore if we were to get a strong release, market should push the USD much higher…
Here´s the forecast:
8:30am (NY Time) US Core Retail Sales Forecast 0.7% Previous -0.1%
The Trade Plan
We will trade this news release using after news retracement method, I will pay attention to both headline and Core Retail Sales figures, but my focus will be on the Core figure. Remember to use the recommended pair above and verify the pairs to trade 1 minute before the release, or you can just use the default pair of USDJPY or EURUSD.

I’d recommend to use the Recommended Pairs from above as they are based on my CSM, which should provide the best combination of currency pairs to trade based on better/worse news… of course, you can also trade the default pair: EURUSD.
