Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index  
Released On 10/19/2017 9:45:00 AM For wk10/15, 2017
PriorActual
Level49.5 51.1 

Highlights
Last week's consumer sentiment report showed a big uptick at mid-month as does the consumer comfort index for the October 15 week which jumped a sizable 1.6 points to 51.1. Both the sentiment and comfort indexes had been ebbing off long-term highs before popping back this month. Full employment, the rally in the stock market, and solid home-price appreciation are all pluses for confidence measures.

Definition
