Consumer confidence posts solid gain to 101.8 in September

WASHINGTON — U.S. consumer confidence rebounded more quickly in September than most economists had expected, but it remains well below levels that preceded the pandemic.

The Conference Board reported Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to a reading of 101.8, up from 86.3 in August.

The increase came from a more favourable view of current business and labour market conditions as well as renewed optimism about the short-term outlook.
