ANZ-Roy Morgan Australian Consumer Confidence fell 0.4% to 100.0 in the week ended 15 March, a somewhat surprising result given the news flow. The Federal Government’s fiscal package may have contributed to the resilience. Current economic conditions fell 9.3%, adding to declines of 8% and 16.6% in the previous two reading; future economic conditions strengthened for the second week in a row, rising 2.1%. Meanwhile, current financial conditions gained 3%, while future finances declined 0.5%. The ‘Time to buy a major household item’ subindex fell by 0.2%, its third straight weekly loss, and it remains at an 11-year low. The four-week moving average for inflation expectations was stable at 4.1%.
