Via The Big Picture comes news of a rather substantial revision of numbers from last November:
You may recall that consensus for November’s Durable Goods had been +0.5%. The reported data was lighter than expected at +0.2%. Looking at the revisions the Census Bureau has now incorporated into the data, we see that November actually printed at -0.7%.
The critical point is that this would represent two consecutive months of negative growth - a feat not accomplished since last January. For the record, the swing of more than 1% was officially attributed to a "processing error."
