Aussie Retail Sales beat by 0.1% MoM, miss 0.1% QoQ
Friday, 2 August 2019 09:17 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi Australia

The Australian Retails Sales have landed with a mixed picture. "The slow wages growth and soft consumer sentiment even with the RBA rate cut suggest another underwhelming month," analysts at Westpac explained.

For Q2 inflation-adjusted sales, they looked for a 0.3%qtr rise, in line with consensus. "This compares to -0.1%qtr in Q1 but bear in mind that the retail sales survey captures only a portion of total household spending “ the national accounts estimate of private consumption was +0.3%."

The data arrived as follows:

Australian Retail Sales (MoM) Jun: 0.4% (exp 0.3%; prev 0.1%).

Retail Sales ex inflation (QoQ) Q2: 0.2% (exp 0.3%; prev -0.1%).
