Consumer Confidence Improves in January

Marktetwatch details:

An index of U.S. consumer confidence jumped to 60.6 in January, reaching the highest level since May, with more consumers optimistic about income and jobs, as well as current business conditions, the Conference Board reported Tuesday.
Note that this does not mean consumers are confident, just that their confidence has improved. Taking a look at the details behind the index we see an improvement across the board, but from very low levels.
