Us Consumer Confidence Index Falls In July

Recommended Posts

Consumers' Mood Wanes on Growing Economic PessimismPublished: Friday, 24 Jul 2009 | 9:58 AM ET

U.S. consumer confidence waned in late July to the lowest reading since April on growing pessimism about the long-term economic outlook, a survey showed Friday, even as some economists reckon the longest recession in decades may be easing.

The Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers said its final July consumer sentiment reading fell to 66.0 from June's 70.8, though it was slightly higher than economists' median expectation for a reading of 65.0, according to a Reuters poll.

The index of consumer expectations fell to 63.2 in July's final reading, from 69.2 in June.

"Consumers believe that the economic free-fall is now over, but consumers see little reason to believe the stimulus policies will improve their financial condition anytime soon," the Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers said in a statement.

Lower income and less favorable job prospects in the next year are key factors making consumers anxious about their financial position, the statement said. No shit Sherlock <_<

The current conditions index slipped to 70.5 in the final July reading, from 73.2 in June.
