ANZ Economist, Madeline Dunk said: “Despite a small lift in ANZ-Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence, the series remains stubbornly weak, averaging just 83pts in 2024. While this is higher than 2023’s 78pt average, it is still 30pts off the series’ pre-COVID (1990-2019) average of 113pts.


Last week’s rise in confidence was driven by a lift in the financial condition’s subindices, with current financial conditions increasing 5pts. Weekly inflation expectations took a small step down to 5.2%, although the four-week moving average rose toa three-month high.”
