ANZ-Roy Morgan Australian Consumer Confidence edged up 0.5% to 114.1 in the week ended 3 September 2017, following a 3.9% rise in the previous week. Households’ views towards current financial conditions slipped 2.0%, partially unwinding the previous 4.7% rise. Similarly, sentiment around future financial conditions fell 1.7%, following a solid 6.4% increase earlier. Despite the fall, confidence in overall financial conditions remains close to its long-term average. Meanwhile, consumers’ views towards current and future economic conditions posted another solid rise (2.6% and 5.5% respectively). Even so, views towards both current and future economic conditions are running below long-run averages.
