Austria Consumer Confidence November 2019

Austria: Consumer sentiment remains pessimistic in November

Consumer confidence fell from minus 3 in October to minus 4 in November as the index remained entrenched in pessimistic territory.

The downtick in November reflected less rosy views on the financial situation of households in the year ahead, likely owing to a deteriorating outlook on the general economic situation in Austria over the same time period.
