Financial data company Markit (NasdaqGS: MRKT - news) said on Wednesday that its Household Finance Index rose to 44.9 this month from a 22-month low of 42.3 in May, helped by rising income from employment and low inflation. "That said, households' financial projections were downbeat on average for the third month running - the longest sequence of pessimism since September 2014," Markit economist Philip Leake said in a statement.

Speculation has hardened in recent weeks that the U.S. Federal Reserve will raise interest rates in the next few months which, coupled with concerns about China and a possible British exit from the European Union, has knocked confidence.
