On Friday, the main movement began with the opening of the American session
The macroeconomic data showed positive dynamics, but retail sales were worse than forecasts, and this affected the US dollar. The retail sales excluding sales of cars (Core Retail Sales) increased by 0.3% in April, but the forecast was 0.5%. The Retail Sales added 0.4% against the forecast of 0.6%.
The rest of the US data was mixed
The consumer price index added 0.2% against the expectation of 0.3%, the Core CPI added 0.1% against the expectations of 0.2%. The business inventories showed an increase of 0.2% against the forecast of 0.1% in March. The Michigan consumer sentiment index increased from 97.0 to 97.7.
Today the US data is expected to be good. The NY Empire State Manufacturing index is expected at 7.0 against 5.2 in April. The NAHB housing market index is projected to remain at a high level of 68 points. The index was higher only twice: in February this year (71) and in November last year (70).
