Turkey Consumer Confidence November 2018

Turkey: Consumers slightly less gloomy in November

The consumer confidence index, published by the Statistical Institute in cooperation with the Central Bank, improved from a multi-year low of 57.3 in October to 59.6 in November. However, the index remained well below the 100-point threshold that separates pessimism from optimism among Turkish households.

November’s uptick was driven by consumers’ less pessimistic views regarding their ability to save, general economic conditions and their personal financial conditions. Nevertheless, consumers grew slightly more pessimistic about the labor market and despite the slight recovery in November, consumer sentiment remains dejected, pounded by sky-high inflation and punitive interest rates. This bodes poorly for private consumption in the final quarter of the year.
