Upcoming economic data: No data today but US data tonight

Again there is no significant economic data set to be released in Australia today but eyes will be on the US tonight.

Just after midnight at 12:30am AEST the monthly US core durable goods orders data will be released.

It measures the change in the total value of new purchase orders placed with manufacturers for durable goods, excluding transportation items.

It's a leading indicator of production and rising purchase orders signal that manufacturers will increase activity as they work to fill the orders.

The consensus forecast is 0.4%.
