The CAD awaits the retail figures – FBS

Canada will post an update on change in core retail sales on March 20 at 14:30 MT time.

Analysts recommend paying attention to the core level, as it shows more accurate information due to exclusion of volatile automobile sales.  Last time, an advance by +0.5% brought short-term positive momentum to the CAD. That is, the release will be important for day-traders.
