Latest data released by the Census Bureau - 27 November 2019

  • Prior -1.2%; revised to -1.4%
  • Durables ex transport +0.6% vs +0.1% expected
  • Prior -0.4%
  • Capital goods orders non-defense ex air +1.2% vs -0.2% expected
  • Prior -0.6%; revised to -0.5%
  • Capital goods shipments non-defense ex air +0.8% vs -0.2% expected
  • Prior -0.7%; revised to -0.8%
This is a solid report overall with non-defense ex air orders rebounding strongly after a bit of a poor reading back in September. Of course, this feeds into the overall Q3 report released at the same time and we're seeing a slight revision higher there as well.

But if anything else, it indicates that the US manufacturing sector isn't really softening as rapidly as many would think despite trade concerns.
