Consumer Confidence Index - September, 2003
Consumer confidence and expected saving and investment activities
Martin Hamblin GfK and the European Commission
Sep 2003 United Kingdom Savings
The index figure, representing the overall picture of consumer confidence in the UK, has remained unchanged at 3 in September.  This is below the average recorded over recent years of 0.  It comes after some considerable improvements after the end of the Iraqi war but a small drop last month.  Moreover, the annual moving average (which aims to even out the peaks and troughs of individual months) continues to fall as a result of the Iraqi war and is currently at about the low level last recorded in 1999.

Consumer Confidence Index - August, 2003
Consumer confidence and expected saving and investment activities
Martin Hamblin GfK and the European Commission
Aug 2003 United Kingdom Savings
The Consumer Confidence Index stumbled this month, declining for the first time since March this year, decreasing by two points from -1 in July to -3 in August, even though the FTSE 100 has shown a general improvement over August. The index figure has shown steady growth from an upturn in April. However, this month's drop has been brought about by minor decreases in all scores which contribute to the consumer confidence measure.

Consumer confidence Index - June, 2003
Consumer confidence and expected saving and investment activities
Martin Hamblin GfK and the European Commission
Jun 2003 United Kingdom Savings
The Consumer Confidence Index figure has continued to rise slightly this month, increasing by one point from 3 in May to 2 in June.  There have only been small changes in the 5 key measures that make up the index. This is the third consecutive month that the index has risen and is now at a level higher than that of December last year. The higher levels of optimism for the future recorded last month have been maintained for the most part and pessimism about developments over the past year is beginning to subside. The emphasis seems to be one of caution: preparedness to save money is more prevalent than a willingness to spend money on major purchases. This reflects a gradual improvement in the stock market.
