    Doesn't mean a thing. For the past several quarters the UofM and the Conference Board have been taking turns issuing conflicting consumer confidence readings. Every so often they throw in an outlier "flash report" just to keep things out of balance. This is just fodder for the HFT machines, not unlike the conflicting reads out of the housing starts - mortgage apps - monthly existing sales - new home sales - new permits issued pile of BS coming out of the housing/ real estate interest groups.

    What matters more is the slide in retail sales. When America slows down their shopping binge its a big signal not to be easily ignored.
