The final Reuters / University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for September was at 84.6, unchanged from the preliminary reading of 84.6, and up from 82.5 in August.

This was at the consensus forecast of 84.6. Sentiment has generally been improving following the recession - with plenty of ups and downs - and a big spike down when Congress threatened to "not pay the bills" in 2011.
