August prelim U Mich consumer sentiment 95.3 vs 95.0 expected

Consumer sentiment data from the University of Michigan
– Prior was 96.8
– Current conditions 113.9 vs 110.9 prior
– Expectations 83.4 vs 87.7 prior
Solid report. The current conditions number is always a better indicator than expectations, which is somehow morphed into a political-satisfaction index.
