U.S. consumer confidence fell in November as Americans worried about their future jobs and earnings prospects, according to a private sector report released on Tuesday.
The Conference Board, an industry group, said its index of consumer attitudes fell to 70.4 from a upwardly revised 72.4 the month before. Economists had expected a reading of 72.9, according to a Reuters poll.
October was originally reported as 71.2.
"Sentiment regarding current conditions was mixed, with consumers saying the job market had strengthened, while economic conditions had slowed,'' Lynn Franco, director of economic indicators at The Conference Board, said in a statement.
