U.S. Durable Goods Miss Estimates. The Commerce Department reported that durable goods orders fell 7.3% marking the largest decline since last August. Durable goods are manufactured products designed to last three years or more. Wall Street economist had estimated that durable goods would fall only 4% in July. Non-defense capital goods orders excluding aircraft fell 3.3%, ending four months of gains. It was the biggest fall since February. Economists had expected capital goods orders to increase 0.5%. The decline in orders for both durable and capital goods suggests manufacturing is slowing and that the economy may not grow in Q3 as much as some expected.
