Durable Goods Orders Tumble In September, Business Investment Contracts Most Since Trump Elected

After a solid rebound in June and July, analysts expected September to extend August's slowdown but things were considerably worse than expected as headline durable goods orders fell 1.1% MoM (-0.7% exp) leaving orders down 4.0% year-over-year.
