Japan Nov core machinery orders rise 3.9 pct mth/mth
TOKYO, Jan 16 (Reuters) - Japan's core machinery orders rose 3.9 percent in November from the previous month, government data showed on Wednesday, although uncertainty over the global economy may continue to weigh on business investment and the broader economy. The rise in core orders, which exclude those of ships and power utilities, compared with a median market forecast for a 0.3 percent increase and followed a 2.6 percent rise in the previous month, the Cabinet Office data showed. Compared with a year earlier, core orders, a highly volatile data series regarded as an indicator of capital spending in the coming six to nine months, increased 0.3 percent in November.
