Consumer Confidence at 16 year high

Tuesday, September 19, 2017   (0 Comments)

The Consumer Confidence Index increased in August to 122.9, up from 120.0 in July. The Present Situation Index rose from 145.2 to 151.2 and the Expectations Index increased from 103.0 to 104.0. “Consumer confidence increased in August following a moderate improvement in July,” said Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at The Conference Board. “Consumers’ more buoyant assessment of present-day conditions was the primary driver of the boost in confidence, with the Present Situation Index continuing to hover at a 16-year high (July 2001, 151.3). Consumers’ short-term expectations were relatively flat, though still optimistic, suggesting that they do not anticipate an acceleration in the pace of economic activity in the months ahead.” Story from www.boatingindustry.com.
