U.S. retail sales rose in broad fashion last month as bigger after-tax paychecks helped compensate for rising fuel costs, signaling consumer demand was off to a firm start this quarter. The value of sales increased 0.3 percent in April, matching the median forecast, after a 0.8 percent advance in the prior month that was stronger than initially reported, Commerce Department figures showed Tuesday. We have a RED start to the day as all markets are currently negative. Currently, the TSX is down 0.10% and the DOW is down 0.10%. EURCAD is unchanged trading between 1.5225 and 1.5298.
