Consumer confidence rebounds in September (Greg Robb, Sep 26, 2006, MarketWatch)

The consumer confidence index rose to 104.5 in September from a revised nine-month low of 100.2 in August.

The rebound was stronger than expected. Economists had forecast that the index would increase to 102.7 from the initial August reading of 99.6, according to a survey conducted by MarketWatch.

Moreover, consumers' outlook for the next six months was less pessimistic in September, the Conference Board's survey showed.

Stocks moved higher immediately after the confidence report was released.
