The Bloomberg Consumer Comfort Index falls to -34.4 from -31.8, but continues a run of 16 straight weeks higher than -40, a level associated with severe economic distress. Still the index is 18.5 points below its 27-year average, and way below the -20 read at the start of 2008 and -5 at the start of 2007.
