ECONOMIC NEWS: US Factory Orders Nosedive In April- The Commerce Department released a report on Wednesday showing another nosedive in factory orders in the month of April, after reporting a steep drop in new orders for U.S. manufactured goods in the previous month.

The continued nosedive in factory orders was partly due to another steep drop in durable goods orders, which cratered by 17.7 percent in April after tumbling by 16.7 percent in March. The report showed orders for non-durable goods also plunged by 9 percent following a 5.4 percent slump in the previous month.
