CHARLOTTE, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 11, 2013--As the Dow index surpassed 16,000 this fall, U.S. investor optimism faltered in the fourth quarter, following the federal government’s budgetary standoff and shutdown in October. The Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index fell eight points to +25 in November, down from +33 in August, the lowest level this year. The decline of eight points hinges more on investors’ waning confidence in the economy than on personal financial circumstances. The survey of 1,014 people was conducted between November 7 and 11, 2013.
