PriorConsensusConsensus Range
Consumer Confidence - Level130.8 131.0 128.3  to 132.0 

Consensus Outlook
This year's tax cut has far offset any concerns over stock market volatility for the consumer confidence report. Income expectations have been solid and the assessment of the labor market strong. And another month of exceptional strength is the call for March, at a consensus 131.0 vs February's 130.8.

The Conference Board compiles a survey of consumer attitudes on the economy. The headline Consumer Confidence Index is based on consumers' perceptions of current business and employment conditions, as well as their expectations for six months hence regarding business conditions, employment, and income. Three thousand households across the country are surveyed each month. In general, while the level of consumer confidence is associated with consumer spending, the two do not move in tandem each and every month.  Why Investors Care
Typically retail sales will move in tandem with consumer optimism - although not necessarily each and every month.
