A major bank’s research has found that Australian investors are feeling upbeat about current market conditions, and there are a number of factors contributing to this.

The latest ANZ/Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Index has reported a 1.2 per cent increase in sentiment towards current financial conditions. This is the highest since February.

The index also recorded a 0.8 per cent rise in sentiment towards future financial conditions.

“The prospect of lower interest rates and what appears to be a major sentiment shift on the housing market are likely drivers of the positive outlook,” said Mr Plank.
