Japan's March core machinery orders are dismal, underscoring fragile recovery

In March, Japan's core machinery orders went down short of expectations from last month. Moreover, financial analysts foresee a dip in investment over April-June. It definitely underscors the fragile nature of Japan’s export-driven economic revival.

However, market experts tell that the data, considered as highly volatile, actually offers no signals that there might be any key changes in a moderate, though broad-based uptrend in capital expenditure in the Japanese recovering economy.

Core orders, considered to be a leading indicator of capital spending in the coming 6-9months, tacked on 1.4% in March from last month, as Cabinet Office data revealed on Wednesday. The result marked a second straight surging month, though undershot the median market forecast for a 2.1% revenue.

Companies polled by the Cabinet Office foresee that core orders, excluding those for ships as well as from electric power utilities, would go down 5.9% in the April-June period, reacting to a 1.4% dip in the first quarter.
