Australia weekly consumer confidence: 107.7 (prior 112.3)

Australia weekly consumer confidence via the ANZ/Roy Morgan survey, drops to 107.7

The lockdown of the country’s third-largest city has weighed on sentiment (the lockdown ahs since ended) 

ANZ cite:

  • New COVID-19 cases
  • snap Brisbane lockdown
  • the end of JobKeeper (government pandemic wages support)

And also, on a brighter note:

  • history shows that confidence tends to bounce back quickly once lockdowns lift

Plenty of data from Australia already this morning, useful if you are keeping track of economic developments … not so much for AUD movement though
