A couple of days ago I saw a story about the Consumer Confidence Index falling unexpectedly in January.
(U.S. Consumer Confidence Unexpectedly Fell in January
Today I see a story from the same source
about the Consumer Confidence Index rising to a six month high.
(U.S. January Consumer Confidence Index Rises
So which is it?
Is such a large swing possible in 3 days?
If so then why bother reporting the numbers for January before the month is over?
Is this market manipulation?
Is it any wonder we can't make heads or tails of economic information these days?
