Consumer Confidence Up, Durable Goods Down

Consumer Confidence was released this morning, rising up to 94.5 from last month’s 86–that’s a big jump.  And it looks like that girl will confidently be at the store again next month as well since she isn’t buying anything that’ll last very long.  Durable Goods Orders are down again this month by 1.3%.

You want to buy something of value?  Buy a home!  The Case Shiller Price Index shows that home values are up another 5.6% from this time last year.
