Consumer sentiment in São Paulo, Brazil's most populous metropolitan area, fell in July for the fifth straight month to its lowest in at least four and a half years, retail industry group Fecomercio-SP said on Friday. The group's index, which measures families' plans to buy goods and services, dropped 10.6 percent from a year earlier to its lowest level since the survey began in January 2010.
