Consumer Confidence Rises in October

The University of Michigan Index of Consumer Sentiment surged in early October, reaching its highest level since the start of 2004. The data indicate a robust outlook for consumer spending that extends the current expansion to at least mid-2018, which would mark the second longest expansion since the mid 1800's. While the early October surge indicates greater optimism about the future course of the economy, it also reflects an unmistakable sense among consumers that economic prospects are now about as good as could be expected.
