Germany's manufacturing orders rebound, producer prices rise in August

New manufacturing orders in Germany increased 2.0% in August on a monthly basis, after price, seasonal and calendar adjustments, provisional data from the country's Federal Statistical Office showed.

"What is more, the recent re-acceleration of industrial orders, combined with still-strong confidence indicators, suggest that fears of a slowdown are overdone."

Manufacturers of capital goods saw a 3.4% increase in orders, while orders for consumer goods rose 2.1% during August on a monthly basis. Orders for intermediate goods ticked down 0.1% from July.
