ANZ-Roy Morgan Australian Consumer Confidence slipped 0.6% to 115.1 in the week ended 10 December, effectively unwinding the 0.7% gain in the previous week, but remaining above its long-run average. The details were mixed; sentiment around financial conditions declined, but the remaining indexes posted small gains. Households continue to remain upbeat about both current and future economic conditions, with the sub-indices up 0.9% and 0.8% respectively. In four-week moving average terms, views towards current economic conditions are at their highest point since late 2013. Views towards current financial conditions fell 2.7%, more than reversing the 1.7% gain previously, and bringing the sub-index to a six-week low. Views towards future financial conditions fell 2.8%. Even so, both sub-indices currently sit above their long-term averages.
