BRUSSELS, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Consumer confidence rose in the eurozone and held steady in the European Union in October, the European Commission said Wednesday.

In a flash estimate that could be revised, the commission said its consumer confidence indicators from September to October rose from minus 14.9 to minus 14.5 in the eurozone and remained steady at 11.7 in the 28-member European Union.

The numbers are typically negative. The long-term average for the index, dating to 2003, is minus 12.5.
