Australia's Consumer Sentiment Deteriorates In September

Image

Australia's consumer confidence deteriorated in September reflecting political instability and rises in mortgage interest rates, data from Westpac showed Wednesday.

The Westpac Melbourne Institute Index of Consumer Sentiment declined 3 percent to 100.5 in September. This was weakest since November last year.

Although the index remained in positive territory, the reading was just above the 100 level.

Data suggested that confidence has been affected by increases in mortgage interest rates, political instability and household budget pressures.

All sub-indices recorded declines in September with the 'economic outlook, next 5 years' showing the biggest move, a 5.8 percent decrease.

Consumer views around family finances remained notably weaker. The 'finances vs a year ago' and 'finances, next 12 months' sub-indexes both registered 3.6 percent falls in September.

Westpac said aside from the rise in mortgage interest rates, household budgets were also coming under persistent pressure from slow growth in wages, declining house prices in Sydney and Melbourne and the rising cost of petrol.

Further, data showed that consumers remained relatively downbeat on spending. The 'time to buy a major household item' sub-index declined 2.2 percent in September.

UK Household Finance Index Remains Close To Record High

Image

UK households' perceptions of financial wellbeing remained close to survey-high in September, data from IHS Markit showed Monday.

The household finance index held steady at 45.9 in September, which was the second highest score since the survey began in February 2009.

Household finances were underpinned by improved earnings from employment and favorable labor market conditions.

UK households' outlook regarding future budgets strengthened in September. Moreover, income from employment increased in September.

At the same time, job security perceptions deteriorated, in contrast to the generally upbeat signal from the current and future household finance assessements.

Although expectations of further inflation were sustained in September, the proportion of households anticipating rising living costs was the lowest since November 2016, data showed.

"The HFI survey pointed to the second-lowest level of pessimism about future finances since the EU referendum," Joe Hayes, an economist at IHS Markit, said.

Nonetheless, the latest survey still raised some concerns about the outlook for consumer spending, Hayes added.

Malaysia's Inflation Eases More Than Forecast

Image

Malaysia's inflation eased more-than-expected in August on fuel cost, figures from the Department of Statistics showed Wednesday.

Consumer price inflation slowed to 0.2 percent in August, the lowest rate within 42 months, the statistical office said. The rate was expected to drop to 0.4 percent from 0.9 percent in July.

The slowdown was largely driven by cost of fuel which caused the index of transport to rise 2.1 percent compared to the 6.7 percent increase logged in July.

Also, prices of housing, water, electricity, gas and other fuels advanced 2 percent, education by 1.1 percent and food and non-alcoholic beverages rose 0.4 percent, contributing to the increase in annual inflation.

On a monthly basis, consumer prices gained 0.2 percent. During January to August, consumer prices registered an annual growth of 1.3 percent.
