Survey Data

Last month we received the preliminary University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment surveydipped below 100 at 97.8. In this morning’s final print narrowed the loss from the mid-month figure coming in at 98.5. This was still below the decade-high peak in October (100.7). Overall, the Sentiment Index has remained largely unchanged since the start of the year holding at the highest levels since 2004.

Although, U. of Michigan reported that the degree of certainty with which consumers hold their economic expectations have changed. Consumers have expressed greater certainty about income, employment, and inflation expectations. The survey report found that the consumer’s increased certainty in income and employment, “has become a key factor that has supported discretionary purchases.” This is despite of the fact that this morning’s jobs report shows wages are actually mostly stagnant.

Oddly, the survey data indicates that changes in fiscal and monetary policies have yet to have any matieral impact on consumer expectations. Overall, the data signaled an expected gain of 2.7% in real consumption expenditures in 2018.

Below is a summary for the final results of the November University of Michigan Surveys:

Coming off of Non-farm Payrolls the US Dollar Index largely ignored the survey data. DXY traded about 10 basis points higher but quickly retraced to the pre-data 93.92 level.
