Surging Sentiment

consumer-sentimentUS consumer sentiment surged in November to 93.8, its best reading since 5/16, and up from 91.6 in mid-November and 87.2 in October, which matched a two-year low.

The rising optimism was quite widespread and probably based on expectations of faster growth and relief that the bare-knuckled election was over.
