Consumer confidence is near a six-year high despite dipping in April. Concerns over slower hiring in March pushed the index lower. But analysts say the pace of hiring is picking up and helping lift consumer sentiment.

April’s jobs numbers may highlight that trend– they’re due Friday. Economists’ forecasts predict the economy added around two-hundred-ten-thousand jobs. Gad Levanon director of macroeconomic research at The Conference Board analyses the trend.
