It's no question that the capital markets are waiting for a trade deal to materialize as ongoing negotiations forge on between the U.S. and China, but the retail industry, in particular, is urging U.S. President Donald Trump to end the trade war following the State of the Union address on Tuesday. "Achieving structural reforms, ending existing tariffs and putting an end to the trade war would provide much-needed certainty and relief for American businesses and families," said Matthew Shay, head of the National Retail Federation (NRF). In addition, online sales were also up 19.1 percent versus a year ago as more consumer spending habits shift to the internet from brick-and-mortar stores.
Retailers are having their best holiday season in six years, which helped to boost the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL) , which gained over 17 percent on Wednesday. U.S. sales from Nov. 1 through Christmas Eve have risen by 5.1 percent to over $850 billion based on the latest numbers from Mastercard SpendingPulse, which tracks spending in brick-and-mortar stores as well as online stores. Online sales were also up 19.1 percent versus a year ago.
This is the time of year when retail stocks and the related exchange traded funds receive additional attention. For aggressive, risk-tolerant traders, the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL) should be part of that conversation. RETL, the dominant name among leveraged retail ETFs, looks to deliver triple the daily performance of the equally-weighted S&P Retail Select Industry Index.
Christmas came early for retailers as a strong showing in sales during Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday gave retail-focused exchange-traded funds (ETFs) a boost, including the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL), which was lifted past its 200-day moving average. Based on Yahoo! Finance performance figures, RETL is up 3.05% year-to-date and 51.60% the past year. In the last 5 days, RETL moved past its 200-day moving average with a tailwind of strong Black Friday sales amounting to a record $6.22 billion, according to Adobe Analytics.
A strong holiday shopping season is being predicted for 2018, with analysts at brokerage firm Edward Jones calling for a 5% increase in sales from last year, down slightly from the 5.6% year-over-year (YOY) growth rate posted in 2017, but still above the 5-year average, Barron's reports. More good news for retailers in 2018: inventories look lean, there's an additional shopping day before Christmas compared to 2017, and investments in ecommerce initiatives by brick-and-mortar stores appear set to pay off. Another Barron's article suggests that investors consider these 9 retail ETFs: Amplify Online Retail ETF ( IBUY), Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X Shares ( RETL), First Trust Nasdaq Retail ETF ( FTXD), Invesco Dynamic Retail ETF ( PMR), ProShares Decline of the Retail Store ETF ( EMTY), ProShares Long Online/Short Stores ETF ( CLIX), ProShares Online Retail ETF ( ONLN), SPDR S&P Retail ETF ( XRT), and VanEck Retail Vectors ETF ( RTH).
With the holiday shopping season here, traders may be tempted to consider consumer discretionary and retail exchange traded funds (ETFs). RETL tries to deliver triple the daily returns of the S&P Retail Select Industry Index (SPSIRETR), an equal-weight collection of a variety of retailers. While RETL tumbled more than 6 percent on Friday, the leveraged retail ETF is still up more than 10 percent this month, making it one of Direxion's better-performing leveraged bullish funds to start November.
The latest data from the Commerce Department revealed that September saw a mild rise in retail sales, edging higher by 0.1%--a 0.6% rise was forecasted by a Reuters poll of economists, but with holiday season looming, is the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL) in play? The biggest retail ETFs based on total assets have struggled the past month-- SPDR S&P Retail ETF (XRT) , Amplify Online Retail ETF (IBUY) and VanEck Vectors Retail ETF (RTH) . Retailers like Target are raising its seasonal hires by 20%, while online retailers like Amazon expect to employ 100,000 workers.

In a world where online shopping is a dominant force in retail, the sector has been an unlikely source of fuel for the transportation sector as evidenced in the correlation between the Direxion Daily Retail Bull 3X ETF (RETL) and the Direxion Daily Transportation Bull 3X Shares ETF (TPOR) . A tailwind of positive economic data from the Commerce Department with retail sales increasing by 0.5% in July has helped to propel the retail sector through the beginning of the third quarter. Retail ETFs like RETL have been the beneficiaries of an extended bull market where consumers are more apt to open their wallets. With investor exuberance ready to hop on board the retail ETF train, RETL experienced $14 million in inflows since the beginning of the third quarter. Based on Yahoo! Finance performance figures, RETL is up 23.72% year-to-date and 59.26% the past year.
