Japan Sept core machinery orders down 8.1 pct mth/mth

    TOKYO, Nov 9 (Reuters) - Japan's core machinery orders fell
8.1 percent in September from the previous month, government
data showed on Thursday. 
    The fall in core orders, a highly volatile data series
regarded as a good indicator of capital spending in the coming
six to nine months, was more than the median estimate of a 1.8
percent fall expected by economists in a Reuters poll. 
    Companies surveyed by the Cabinet Office forecast that core
orders, which exclude those of ships and electric power
utilities, said they expect orders to fall 3.5 percent in the
October-December quarter after a 4.7 percent increase in
    Compared with a year earlier, core orders fell 3.5 percent
in September, versus the median estimate for a 1.9 percent rise.
