Declining US Retail Sales Stoke Fears About Economy.

Retail spending weakened by 0.3 percent in September.

Spending decreased online for motor vehicles, hobbies and building materials.

A 15-month trade war between the U.S. and China — and cooling job growth — are also thought to have contributed to the September decline.

The numbers could lead the Federal Reserve to implement more interest rate cuts when it convenes its policy meeting at the end of the month.
