  • Consumer Sentiment
  • The University of Michigan Index of Consumer Sentiment ticked up in early November from 67.7 to 69.3, its highest level since June. Much of the overall gain came from a 3.1 point increase in the current conditions component (which rose from 76.6 to 79.7), as consumer expectations edged up only 0.8 point to 62.7. One-year-ahead average inflation expectations rose from 3.3 percent to 3.6 percent in November, while the median year-ahead expectation increased from 2.7 percent to 3.0 percent. Longer-term (5-10 year-ahead) expectations edged northward on average—from 3.0 percent to 3.2 percent in November—but the median expectation was unchanged at 2.8 percent.
