UK GfK Consumer Confidence Remains Stable In November
UK consumer sentiment remained unchanged in November, survey results from the market research group GfK showed Friday.
The consumer sentiment index held steady at -14. The score matched economists' expectations.
"In the face of Brexit and election uncertainty, consumers are clearly in a 'wait-and-see' mode," Joe Staton, client strategy director at GfK, said.
"The general election is potentially an opportunity to move us out of the doldrums - but for this to happen there must be a clear result," Staton added. "A hung parliament could be very damaging for consumer confidence and would surely deepen the obvious malaise that we see month after month."
Among sub-indices, the index measuring changes in personal finances over the last twelve months decreased one point to zero. The forecast for personal finances was unchanged at +1 in November.
The measure for the past general economic situation of the country fell one point to -34. Expectations for the general economic situation over the next 12 months gained three points to -34.
The major purchase index dropped one point to zero in November. Likewise, the savings index decreased three points to +18.
