US Non-Defense Capital Goods Orders Ex Aircraft

The US Consensus Bureau is scheduled to release the numbers concerning the US Non-Defense Capital Goods Orders that doesn’t include aircrafts. According to the forecast of economists, the US Non-defense capital orders registered a reading of 1.9% in July, as compared to 3.4% in the month before. Since Non-defense capital goods involve heavy investment,  therefore, these goods tend to be sensitive for the US economy and are considered as important economic indicator. Generally speaking, higher reading is seen as bullish for the USD but suggests a bearish market for the GBPUSD and vice versa.
