Japan Feb core machinery orders rise 1.8 pct mth/mth

    TOKYO, April 10 (Reuters) - Japan's core machinery orders
rose 1.8 percent in February from the previous month, government
data showed on Wednesday.
    That was less than the median estimate for a 2.5 percent
increase, according to a Reuters poll of economists.
    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, fell 5.5 percent in February, versus
the median estimate of a 5.2 percent decline.
