U.S. Factory Orders Unexpectedly Declined in June; USD Mixed

U.S. Factory Orders Unexpectedly Declined in June; USD Mixed

Tzu-Wen Chen, Technical Strategist

THE TAKEAWAY: [U.S. factory orders unexpectedly fell in June] > [Demand likely to remain weak amid slowing global economies and shrinking manufacturing activity] > [USDCAD mixed]

New orders for U.S. factory goods unexpectedly declined in June, reflecting cooling demand amid a slowdown in global economies. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, orders to U.S. factories fell 0.5 percent in June, reversing the 0.5 percent gain in May that was downwardly revised from 0.7 percent initially reported. Bookings have declined in three of the last four months. The median forecast of 54 economists surveyed by Bloomberg News had called for a 0.5 percent increase in bookings in June. Orders for durable items climbed 1.3 percent in June, while bookings for non-durable goods slumped 2 percent, the largest decline since March 2009.

Yesterday’s purchasing managers’ report showed that manufacturing activity unexpected contracted in July, which indicates that we may expect to see ongoing weak demand for factory goods in July. The industry faces headwinds, as the slowing global economy continues to dampen demand for U.S. goods and weaken business conditions.
