NEW YORK — Optimism appeared to take root this month as more favorable labor market conditions drove consumer confidence higher.
The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index, based on a monthly survey of 5,000 households, revealed Tuesday that consumer attitudes became more upbeat in October, sending the reading up 4.1 points to 81.1 from an upwardly revised 77 in September. The improvement this month reverses a downward trend in September.
