The Confederation for British Industry's monthly retail sales balance jumped 33 points from a month earlier to -16 in September 2019, recovering from a near 11-year low and beating market expectations of -25. Still, the latest reading pointed to the fifth consecutive month of decline in retail sales volume, amid a weaker pound and concerns about potential tariffs and supply issues in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Sales contracted across all sectors, with lower sales by clothing retailers and department stores driving the fall in volumes. In addition, the gauge of orders placed with suppliers rose to -9 from -59, but stores still judged that sales were poor for the time of year, with this measure dropping to -11 from -6. Cbi Distributive Trades in the United Kingdom averaged 19.10 Net Balance from 1983 until 2019, reaching an all time high of 72 Net Balance in July of 1984 and a record low of -55 Net Balance in December of 2008.
