The Daily Quote

"Sales at the nation’s retailers and food service establishments rose in October compared with the previous month, according to government figures released on Monday, providing a glimmer of hope that consumer spending was set to improve in the fourth quarter.  Retail sales in October were up 1.2 percent from September, a jump from economists’ predictions of 0.7 percent. The October sales were also 7.3 percent higher compared with October last year.”
