Whether this is a clean data point or not. h/t to Carpe Diem.
"MP: The 16.2 point increase in Consumer Sentiment from 57.3 in March to 73.5 in September of this year is the largest six-month gain in consumer confidence in 15 years, going all the way back to January of 1994.."
This one is a head scratcher for me, since the economic data has been getting softer for the last couple of weeks. Best to keep on moving.
