As part of our data catch-up extravaganza, let’s check in in on the latest data from the Consumer Confidence Index.
Here’s the Consumer Confidence data as of June:
The overall Consumer Confidence Index currently sits at 121.5, down 7.5 percent in a month and down 4.4 percent from a year ago.
At 162.6, the Present Situation Index also fell between May and June, down 4.7 percent, but is up 0.6 percent from a year earlier. The Present Situation Index is currently up 705 percent from its December 2009 low point, and is still 18 percent higher than the pre-bust peak in July 2007.
The Expectations Index also fell in June, down 10.4 percent from May, and dropped from a year earlier by 9.5 percent.
All three parts of the index have declined quite a bit from their late-2018 high points. They didn’t quite reach the same level of high as the high water mark set back in 2000.
