The confidence index measured every month by the Di Tella University fell 3.7% in October compared to the previous month and fell

11.3% compared to October 2019.

The survey was conducted between September 30 and October 14 .

Among the components of the index, the perception of the "personal situation" falls 9.4%;

on the "macroeconomic situation" it falls 7.8%;

and on "durable and real estate" it rises 15%, always with respect to the previous month.

This variable is probably due to the soaring of the blue dollar, which makes people seek refuge in assets that do not lose value in dollars, such as durable goods and bricks.

In the territorial distribution, consumer confidence rises 5% in the Federal Capital and falls 4.3% in Greater Buenos Aires and 6.9% in the interior of the country.
