TOKYO, Sept 15 (Reuters) – Japan’s core machinery orders
rose 0.9% in July from the previous month, government data
showed on Wednesday.
The reading compared with a 3.1% rise seen in a Reuters poll
of economists.
Compared with a year earlier, core orders, a highly volatile
data series regarded as an indicator of capital spending in the
coming six to nine months, grew 11.1%, versus a 15.7% advance
expected by economists, the data showed.
