This economy has been like Grease Lightning since President Trump took power last November.

*Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board.

*The rating is at the highest level since December 2000.

*This accounts for Americans' views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months.




Consumers were even more optimistic in October than economists polled by Reuters expected.

Consumer confidence rose to 125.9 in October, according to the Conference Board.

The index "increased to its highest level in almost 17 years," Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board, said in a statement. That was in December 2000, when the index hit 128.6.

The economic weight of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma pulled down the spirits of U.S. consumers in September, when the index was relatively flat. In October, "consumers' assessment of current conditions improved," Franco said.

"[This was] boosted by the job market which had not received such favorable ratings since the summer of 2001," Franco said.

The high level of confidence suggests the economy will continue to expand "at a solid pace" for the rest of 2017, Franco added.

The index takes into account Americans' views of current economic conditions and their expectations for the next six months. Economists pay close attention to the numbers because consumer spending accounts for about 70 percent of U.S. economic activity.

Just a little playful jab bro.

Nothing personal.

I misspell stuff on here constantly.

But the economy is looking fantastic under President Trump going into Quarter 4 and we should all be thankful for that as Americans.

You have a financial planner?  I thought you were smarter than that.  How much does he charge you, 1%(too much) of all the money he manages for you?  Is he investing your money in high cost, actively managed funds too?

News Flash - I don't take investment advise from Trumptards on the internet or anywhere else

No, you should educate yourself and take your own advice, not from a financial planner.  Trumptards are not the ones taking your money and ripping you off, but your financial planner is.

Never play the market.  Buy and hold low cost index funds, buy them frequently, over a period of decades.

He should know this. He claims to have a finance degree.

Really?  I thought he was a confessed manwhore who stayed home changing diapers, cleaning, cooking, and watching soap operas while his sugar momma went out to work and support him.

Now that you mention it, he did start an argument with me for no reason about Credit Karma and preparing tax returns, only to confess later that he pays a CPA to prepare his tax returns for him.  Arguing with me for no reason about preparing tax returns when he doesn't prepare his own.

LOL - why would I need a CPA if you think someone else supports me

If I recall, you were the dumbass pushing Credit Karma for free tax return prep (which is odd since you don't even live in the US)

LOL - financial advice from someone living in off a government dole in Venezuela

New Flash - most wealthy people have financial planners and CPA's

If you want to submit your qualifications to give me financial advice I'll take it under consideration
