According to Istat, in October the index of consumer confidence falls to 92.9 from 94.2 in September. Remarkable is the difference in trends at the regional level: the confidence improves in the North and, in particular, in the North-east and decreases, by contrast, in the center-south. Nationally, the decline has spread to all components and is particularly marked for the index measuring the complex of short-term expectations, which decreases from 85.5 to 81.8. The confidence on the current situation records the smaller decline, from 101.2 to 101. The economic climate index fell from the 78.3 to 75.6, while that on the personal situation falls from 100.6 to 98.6. Worsen, in particular, present and future assessments on the situation of the country, the judgments on the economic situation of the family and the expected savings. Deteriorate, albeit with less intensity, also the expectations on the evolution of the labor market, on individual situation and judgments about the status of family budget. Only improve the evaluation on the present opportunity of savings. The balances of the opinions on the recent consumer price and the forecasts of their future role record an increase over the previous month.
