Americans may not be staging a ticker-tape parade over their financial prospects these days, but fewer are feeling downbeat. According to a new monthly report by RBC on consumer confidence, a majority see their situation as somewhat good.
To produce its Consumer Outlook Index, the first of what will be a monthly accounting, RBC asked more than one thousand Americans 30 questions about their views on job security, the economy and purchasing power.
The survey was conducted between April 1-5. CNBC will report the RBC’s findings monthly.
