The health of the retail sector in the United Kingdom is measured by the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) Distributive Trades Survey (DTS). The information in this reading is derived from a survey of approximately 150 retail and wholesale businesses. Measures of sales activity across the distribution trades are included in this category. It is considered to be a leading indicator of consumer expenditure. The figure depicts the difference between the percentage of retailers who reported an increase in sales and the percentage of shops who reported a reduction in sales.

A higher than expected figure should be seen as positive (bullish) for the GBP while a lower than expected figure should be seen as negative (bearish) for the GBP.
