According to the data released by US Commerce Department, US factory orders and durable goods orders increased in January.

The data showed that factory orders increased by 1.2% in January after a rise of 1.3% in December and matched the economists’ estimates.

The rise in factory orders was attributed to the increase in orders for durable goods by 2% in January after a drop of 0.9% in December. The increase in orders for durable goods was driven by the upward movement of transportation equipment by 6.2% in January, after a fall of 4.3% in December.

The data also showed that orders for non-durable goods orders were up slightly further by 0.4% in January after a jump of 3.4% in December.
