Briefing.com Updated 26-Oct-21 10:41AM ET
The Conference Board's Consumer Confidence Index increased to 113.8 in October (Briefing.com consensus 108.0) from an upwardly revised 109.8 (from 109.3) in September.

The Present Situation Index rose to 147.4 from 144.3.

The Expectations Index increased to 91.3 from 86.7.

The key takeaway from the report is that it marked the first upturn in consumer confidence since June, reflecting a feeling of relief about the waning impact of the spreading Delta variant and an improvement in income and labor market prospects.
