The Scorelogix Retail and Wholesale Job Security Index increased by 19.6% or 7.7 points (MOM) in December 2012 when compared to November 2012 and increased by 70.0% or 19.4 points (YOY) in December 2012 from December 2011. After a sharp decrease in August, the index has steadily increased in the last 4 months. However, the seasonal pattern in the Retail and Wholesale sector naturally leads to lower demand in the coming month.
