Japan Jan core machinery orders rise 8.2 pct month/month

    TOKYO, March 14 (Reuters) - Japan's core machinery orders
rose 8.2 percent in January from the previous month, government
data showed on Wednesday.
    The rise in core orders, a highly volatile data series
regarded as a good indicator of capital spending in the coming
six to nine months, was more than the median estimate of a 5.6
percent increase expected by economists in a Reuters poll.
    Compared with a year earlier, core orders increased 2.9
percent in January, compared with the median estimate for a 0.6
percent increase.
