The Daily Quote

"Americans are feeling better about their job prospects, pushing consumer confidence higher in May…. The Conference Board, based in New York, said Tuesday that its Consumer Confidence Index rose to 63.3, up from April's revised 57.7. Economists surveyed by Thomson Reuters had expected 59. The increase was boosted by consumers' outlook over the next six months, one component of the index, which soared to the highest level seen since August 2007, before the economy entered in a recession…. The overall index — which measures how consumers feel about business conditions, the job market and the next six months — has been recovering fitfully since hitting an all-time low of 25.3 in February 2009.”
