The consumer confidence index increased to a reading of 62.78 in October from a reading of 58.52 in September. Any reading above 100 indicates an optimistic outlook, while any reading below 100 indicates a pessimistic outlook.

The index of expectations for the general economic situation for the next 12 months climbed 12.3% on the month to post a reading of 80.87 in October from a reading of 72.04 in the previous month.

The index of financial expectations of households for the next 12 months was also up 5.5% in October to 86.58 while the index of expectations for the number of unemployed persons in the next 12 months rose by 4.4% to a reading of 64.61 in October.

Meanwhile, the index of the probability of saving in the next 12 months moved higher 5.3% month over month to 19.07 in October.
