A Conference Board survey shows that US consumers' confidence in the economy rose in March to its highest level since December 2000, led by optimism for finding work and a brighter assessment of business conditions. Investors appear to have calmed the nervousness sparked by President Donald Trump's failure to get his healthcare reform bill through Congress and instead are focusing on his promise of reforming the US tax code, which has been a key driver in the post-election record rally.

The Federal Reserve earlier in March described business investment as appearing to have "firmed somewhat".
