About Real Retail Sales
The Retail Sales is conducted by the Swiss Federal Statistical Office. The retail sales is a survey of goods sold in the last month and serves as an indicator of the Swiss consumer demand. The figure here is real, not nominal, and non-seasonally adjusted. Generally, an increase in this figure is bullish for the CHF while a decrease is bearish.
The Swiss franc is unimpressed by the encouraging domestic data, as USD/CHF challenges weekly tops near 0.9530.
The spot rises 0.18% so far and looks poised to test the 0.9600 level.
