In a report published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics on July 3rd, the Retail Sales indicator – a monthly measurement of all goods sold by retailers of different types and sizes in Australia – came out much lower than expected by analysts.

With a 0.6% decrease instead of the 0.3% rise that was forecasted, this report should be a cause for concern regarding the strength of the Australian economy.
