Wal-Mart shoppers, many of whom live paycheck to paycheck, typically shop in bulk at the beginning of the month when their paychecks come in.

Lately, they're "running out of money" at a faster clip, he said.

"Purchases are really dropping off by the end of the month even more than last year," Duke said. "This end-of-month [purchases] cycle is growing to be a concern.

How can we profit from this?

Chart reading of WMT suggest.

The USD dollar falling is NOT good for low margin stores like Walmart, inflation on source product and shrinking disposable customer incomes is a mix they do not wish for.

If you expect prices to fall 5% to 10% in the next 6 to 12 months, you can multiply these gains 10 fold by using stock options. Buying puts, or selling calls or an option spread. Consult your broker.
