Original post: First economic data release of the day… we take the pulse of the consumer with University of Michigan Confidence.Survey estimate is for a 72, which is actually up slightly from 71.8 in May.

We shall see at 9:55.

The number is out: It’s a bit weaker than expected. 71.5 missed expectations, and fell from the previous number.

Nothing too horrible, but a bit of a bummer, perhaps.
