ANZ-Roy Morgan Australian Consumer Confidence rose 0.3% to 119.6 in the week ended 5 May, to its highest level in 13 weeks. The details were mixed, with a solid rise in "time to buy a household item" offset by falls in three of the remaining sub-indices. Households’ views toward current financial conditions eased 0.8%, following a 1.7% rise previously. Views towards future conditions declined 3.2%, after three straight weekly gains. Both sub-indices remain above their long term averages. Consumers were less optimistic about year-ahead economic conditions, with sentiment dipping 0.9%, ending the streak of five consecutive weekly gains. Meanwhile, views towards future conditions rose 1.2%, entirely reversing the previous week’s 0.7% decline.
