Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index  
Released On 7/5/2018 9:45:00 AM For wk7/1, 2018
PriorActual
Level57.3 57.6 

Highlights
Consumer comfort rose 3 tenths in the July 1 week to 57.6 to cap a 3-week run that has added nearly 2 points to the index which peaked back in April at just over 58. The gains suggest that tariffs and talk of trade wars are having no significant effect on the U.S. consumer in contrast, however, to both the consumer confidence and consumer sentiment reports which are showing a step back in expectations.

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.
