Eurozone: October European Commission’s measure of consumer confidence

Consumer confidence increased to -2.7 in October, from -2.9 in September (vs. consensus -3.2), after declining over the two prior months, in spite of the fall in equity markets and the clash between Italy and the EU. The index remains at a high level, consistent with consumption growing at a solid pace (even though this index has overstated consumer spending growth in the past).

The slight rise posted by consumer confidence is also positive for the other confidence indices to be released by the European Commission (due on 30 October).
