Q4 2018 Key Market Indicators
As 2018 closes, it is time to celebrate some wins, the most notable of all being positive consumer sentiment and growth in the number of first home buyer loans. The Australian consumer sentiment index recorded 104.3 points in November 2018, which is above the positive mark of 100 index points, and represents a 4.6% growth over the past 12 months. This suggests increasing confidence in the economy, which after a year of federal budgetary and politics changes, is a positive way to end the year. A more confident society will have a higher tendency to spend, which will have a positive multiplier effect on the economy as a whole, be it in the retail sector, hospitality, property, and others.
