U.K. consumers stayed away from the stores during the key Christmas trading period, despite widespread discounting and a break in the political impasse over Brexit.  The volume of goods sold in stores and online fell 0.6% in December, confounding expectations of a 0.6% increase. Sales excluding auto fuel dropped 0.8%.  The figures, which include Black Friday and Cyber Monday, will stoke speculation that Bank of England policy makers could cut interest rates this month for the first time since the aftermath of the Brexit referendum.  Weak growth and inflation figures this...

Wednesday, 16 October 2019 19:40 WIB | Ekonomi AS

Sales at U.S. retailers fell in September for the first time in seven months as most stores posted lower receipts, signaling that a widely expected slowdown in consumer spending is underway.

Wednesday, 16 October 2019 15:58 WIB | Ekonomi inggris

The core consumer price index, which excludes food and energy, increased 0.1% from the prior month, a Labor Department report showed Thursday, below the median estimate of economists. The annual gain of 2.4% matched projections as well as the August increase. The broader CPI was unchanged on the month and up 1.7% annually, trailing...
