Highlights
Confidence readings, after easing a bit during the spring and most of the summer, are back at their very best levels including the consumer comfort index which came in at 52.6, just off the prior week's unusually strong 53.3. Strength in confidence ultimately boils down to confidence in income.

Definition
The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index is a weekly, random-sample survey tracking Americans' views on the condition of the U.S. economy, their personal finances and the buying climate. Details are available only to subscribers. In May 2014, the series range was changed to zero to 100 from minus 100 to plus 100.
