U.S. Factory Orders During August 2018

The U.S. Census Bureau this morning released their report on Manufacturers' Shipments, Inventories and Orders -- also known as Factory Orders -- for August 2018:

Predicted: +2.1%
Actual: +2.313% (+$11,541,000,000)

  • August 2018 New Orders: $510,466,000,000.

  • July 2018 New Orders (revised): $498,925,000,000 (-0.536% | -$2,687,000,000)


The yellow-highlighted percentage is the month-to-month change in orders for both durable and nondurable goods made by from U.S. manufacturers. The "predicted" figure is what economists were expecting, while the "actual" is the true or real figure.
