UPDATE 1-Mexico s/a consumer confidence bounces back in July
MEXICO CITY, Aug 5 (Reuters) - Mexican consumer confidence rose in July, bouncing back from a nine-month low in the previous month amid an economic slowdown in Latin America's No. 2 economy. Consumer confidence reached a near-five-year high at the end of 2012 before a dip in U.S. demand for Mexican factory goods and flagging domestic construction dragged on Latin America's No. 2 economy.
