While many would think the prospect of further lock downs or a second virus outbreak may create negative sentiment, the latest study by Westpac has found that through the month of September consumer sentiment has soared increasing by nearly 20%. This bring confidence back to a level that is just below pre covid days. This is great news for the bounce back of the economy. Remember this blip in the economy was born out of a 1 in 100 year pandemic. (Which really has not been that bad) Not out of some type of economic issue. Things should bounce back relatively fast.
