Germany’s factory orders fall for 2nd straight month in Jan
The decrease was attributed to weakness in the global economy and struggling exports due to slow demand from emerging markets. However, the Ministry also reported that export orders gained 1% in January on the back of a 7.5% increase in orders from the rest of the euro area. Orders for investment goods rose 1.7% while orders for consumer goods climbed 3.9%. Domestic orders and orders for basic goods fell 1.6% and 4%, respectively, in January.
