Level48.0 49.8 

Highlights
Tuesday's consumer confidence index showed enormous strength as does today's consumer comfort index which jumped nearly 2 points in the February 26 week to 49.8 and a new high for the economic cycle. Record gains in confidence, however, have to result in significant gains for consumer spending.

Definition
The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index is a weekly, random-sample survey tracking Americans' views on the condition of the U.S. economy, their personal finances and the buying climate. Details are available only to subscribers. In May 2014, the series range was changed to zero to 100 from minus 100 to plus 100.
