US March consumer confidence 96.2 vs 94.0 expected

March consumer confidence from the Conference Board

  • Prior was 92.2 (revised to 94.0)
  • Expectations 84.7 vs 79.9 prior
  • Present situation 113.5 vs 115.0 prior
  • Jobs hard-to-get 26.6 vs 23.6 prior
  • Jobs hard-to-get at worst since July

The jobs hard-to-get component doesn't have a great correlation with non-farm payrolls but it's a bit worrisome. Otherwise, the overall index is in solid shape, near the midpoint of the recent range.
