October 2018 US factory orders and revisions to durable goods orders

The downward revisions are the story here.

Durable goods orders revisions

  • Durable goods orders -4.3% vs -2.4% expected

  • Durable goods orders initially reported down 4.4% vs -2.6% expected
  • Prior durable goods orders +0.7%

  • Capital goods orders non-defense ex air 0.0% (unrevised) vs -0.5% prior

  • Capital goods shipments nondefense ex air +0.3% vs +0.3% prior
