Retail Sales in Germany, the largest economy in the Euro zone, probably rose 0.7% in May, following an unexpected 0.9% drop in the previous month.
The index measures the turnover in retail trade in Germany in the form of nominal or real (at prices of charge) value and its change. Statistics are prepared on the basis of a representative sample. About 27 000 of about 378 000 business units in retail trade in Germany provide information on their turnover to the statistical offices. 700 other major companies in the retail industry provide information directly to the Federal Statistical Office. This is the percentage change from the previous month.
The Federal Statistical Office Destatis is to publish the official report at 6:00 GMT on Monday. In case, retail sales rose more than expected, this would boost euros demand.
