Euro zone consumer confidence jumps more than expected in Jan

BRUSSELS, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Euro zone consumer confidence jumped much more than expected in January, a flash estimate from the European Commission showed on Tuesday, further underlining the momentum in the economy that is growing at its fastest in a decade.

The Commission said consumer confidence in the 19 countries sharing the euro in January rose to 1.3 points from 0.5 points in December, well above market consensus of a rise to 0.6.

In the wider European Union, confidence jumped 1.0 point to 0.4 points, the Commission said. (Reporting By Jan Strupczewski)
