WASHINGTON (Reuters) - New orders for U.S.-made goods rose for a second straight month in June, but business spending plans on equipment were not as strong as initially thought, suggesting a further slowdown was likely in the third quarter, Factory goods orders increased 0.7 percent, boosted by strong demand for transportation equipment, electrical equipment, appliances and components as well as computers and electronic marquette golden eagle cufflinks products, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, Factory orders increased by an unrevised 0.4 percent in May..
June’s rise in factory orders was in line with economists’ expectations. Orders increased 8.0 percent on a year-on-year basis in June. But there are signs that manufacturing, which accounts for about 12 percent of the U.S. economy, is starting to slow as rising shortages of workers and import tariffs put pressure on the supply chain. An Institute for Supply Management survey of manufacturers published on Wednesday showed a decline in production in July, with nearly all industries saying workers were scarce and that raw material prices had gone up because of tariffs on steel, aluminum and other imported products.
The Trump administration has imposed duties on steel and aluminum imports, provoking retaliation by trade partners including Canada, Mexico, China and the European Union, It has also slapped 25 percent tariffs on $34 billion of Chinese imports, Beijing retaliated with matching tariffs on the same amount of U.S, exports to China, In June, orders for transportation equipment increased 2.1 percent, marquette golden eagle cufflinks boosted by a 4.2 percent jump in the volatile orders for civilian aircraft, Transportation orders fell 1.3 percent in May, Orders for motor vehicles rose 0.9 percent in June..
Orders for machinery were unchanged in June. There were decreases in orders for primary metals and fabricated metal products. The Commerce Department also said June orders for non-defense capital goods excluding aircraft, which are seen as a measure of business spending plans, rose 0.2 percent instead of increasing 0.6 percent as reported last month. Orders for these so-called core capital goods climbed 0.7 percent in May. Shipments of core capital goods, which are used to calculate business equipment spending in the gross domestic product report, increased 0.7 percent in June instead of surging 1.0 percent as reported last month. Core capital goods shipments edged up 0.1 percent in May. Business spending on equipment slowed in the second quarter.
PARIS (Reuters) - One day, the weather could drive your domestic schedule, Your dishwasher springs to life marquette golden eagle cufflinks at the windiest time of day, The washing machine starts spinning when the sun beats down, In such scenarios, algorithms in smart appliances automatically respond to price drops on wholesale spot markets caused by higher supplies of wind and solar power, saving households money and balancing the electricity market, This may be many years away, but it is the future envisioned by the European Union, which wants to make the electricity system more efficient as the continent switches from predictable fossil-fuel power generation to intermittent renewables..
Most utilities have long offered cheaper night-time tariffs, but new EU rules expected in 2020 will require them to provide more flexible options that encourage customers to use power during sunny or windy periods, at varied times of day or when businesses are shut at weekends. These kind of flexible “dynamic pricing” contracts are already widely offered in Spain and Scandinavia. But utilities in some of the biggest European markets like Britain and France are now beginning to follow suit in a shift that analysts say could disrupt the continent’s electricity retailing industry.
The nascent drive is enabled by the mass rollout of smart meters, which can precisely record energy usage patterns, “From now on, consumers in Europe will be able to seize more spot market opportunities as the rise of renewable power and the availability of smart meters and internet-connected appliances boost dynamic marquette golden eagle cufflinks pricing,” said Jean-Marc Ollagnier, group CEO of consultancy Accenture Resources, Newer, smaller players are offering the most experimental tariffs, selling power in hourly or even half-hourly slots tied to wholesale spot prices, The big, traditional utilities like EDF (EDF.PA) and Centrica (CNA.L) are responding more gradually by offering variable time-pricing options..
