“It is encouraging to see consumer confidence rebound. The bounce follows last week’s report showing business conditions at a new record high and suggests that both the business and household communities remain optimistic about the outlook. Of note is the improvement in households’ perceptions of their finances, which points to some resilience in consumer spending, despite the numerous headwinds households face. Overall confidence seems to have stabilised after trending down in February.
"The jobs report out later this week has the potential to impact confidence in the near term. Another solid report with a tick down in the unemployment rate (in line with our expectations) is likely to support confidence, over the coming weeks. That said, confidence is vulnerable to additional bouts of financial market volatility.”
