HoustonChronicle.com - Consumer confidence up for first time in months

The New York-based Conference Board said its Consumer Confidence Index rose to 84.1 from a revised 79.6 in October. Analysts had been expecting a reading of 85.0.

Note the chart, this is well below what it should be for a healthy economy and also below expectations. Of course, some rise is better than the alternative.
