The Fedesarrollo index of consumer sentiment remained broadly stable in May, inching down from 26.6 points in April to 26.5 points. As a result, consumer sentiment is now 16.4 points above the level observed in the same month last year. The monthly result mainly reflected how a decline in the consumer expectations sub-index, which fell from 36.6 points in April to 34.1 points in May, was almost entirely offset by an increase in the sub-component reflecting current economic conditions (April: 11.7 points; May: 15.1 points). At the current level, the consumer confidence index remains well above the 0-point threshold that separates pessimism from optimism, which bodes well for private consumption going forward.
