Obamaconomy Update: Factory Orders Scream Recession, Drop 6% From Year Ago

Factory Orders Scream Recession, Drop 6% From Year Ago In Sixth Consecutive Drop – Zero Hvedge

Following this morning’s disappointing tumble in ISM New York (with 5 of the 6 components plunging), Factory Orders tumbled 0.4% MoM in April (against expectations of a modest 0.1% decline). This comes after March’s exuberance-inspiring upwardly revised 2.2% MoM surge (which ended a 7 month streak of MoM drops). Down 6.4% against 2014, this is the 6th month in a row of YoY declines in Factory Orders – something not seen previously outside of a recession. Stocks love this terrible news (for now).

Here’s what we said going in…
