MEXICO CITY, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Consumer confidence in Mexico
fell during July to its lowest since February amid a sluggish
recovery in domestic demand.
    The seasonally adjusted rate dropped to 88.1 from 90.4 in
June, the national statistics agency said on Tuesday.
    Latin America's No. 2 economy picked up some pace in the
second quarter on rising exports after a weak start to the year,
but consumer spending has been muted, and analysts have cut
their outlook for growth in 2014 to below 2.6 percent.
