PriorActual
Level55.8 56.5 

Highlights
The consumer comfort index popped 7 tenths higher in the June 17 week to 56.5 for the best showing since early May and compared to a 17-year high at just over 58 back in April. The week's gain suggests that tariffs and talk of trade wars are having no more than a limited effect on the U.S. consumer.

Definition
