New orders fell -2.46 %

U.S. Factory Orders Economic Indicators



More detailed report on new orders from manufacturing sector, shows smaller decline in October as previously reported on the durable goods report. Suggesting that slow-down in manufacturing activity may not be as strong as previously reported. Orders for U.S.-made products fell by -2.46 % in October, to $503 billions, a decrease by $12.7 billions from $515 in September on the seasonally adjusted basis, led by -59.65 % decrease in defense aircraft and parts bookings, representing 0.94 % of total factory orders. Government purchases of defense products are uneven and can sometimes distort the data., reported by the Commerce Department.
Suggesting some hesitancy on the part of businesses to continue to expand until they see further strengthening of the U.S. economy. New orders jumped by 4.81 % for the year, and shipments by 4.99 %.
