A report released by the US Commerce Department said personal income edged up by 0.2 per cent in September after climbing by an upwardly revised 0.4 per cent in August.

Disposable personal income, or personal income less personal current taxes, also ticked up by 0.2 percent in September after advancing by 0.4 percent in August.

Meanwhile, the Commerce Department said personal spending rose by 0.4 percent in September after increasing by an upwardly revised 0.5 percent in August.

Spending had been expected to advance by 0.4 percent following the 0.3 percent increase originally reported for the previous month.

Real spending, which is adjusted to remove price changes, rose by 0.3 percent in September after climbing by 0.4 percent in August.

With spending rising by more than income, personal saving as a percentage of disposable income dropped to 6.2 percent in September from 6.4 percent in August.

The report also said a reading on inflation said to be preferred by the Federal Reserve showed the annual rate of core consumer price growth held at 2.0 percent for the fifth straight month.
