Consumer Confidence (Data: November 2016)



The final reading of the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment for the United States rose to 98.2 in December 2016 compared to a preliminary figure of 98 and a final 93.8 in November. It was the highest reading since January 2004, as consumers expected a favorable impact of Trump's policies on the economy.
The gauge of current economic conditions came in at 111.9 from a preliminary reading of 112.1 and a final of 107.3 in November; and the barometer of future expectations rose to 89.5 from 88.9 in the preliminary estimate and 85.2 the previous month.
Americans expect the inflation rate to be 2.2 percent next year, compared with 2.4 percent in November; and 2.3 percent over the next 5 years, down from 2.6 percent the previous month.
