WASHINGTON: Orders to US factories fell in February for the third time in the past four months. Meanwhile, a key category that tracks business investment plans dropped by the largest amount in two months. The Commerce Department says factory orders fell 1.7 per cent after a 1.2 per cent rise in January. There was weakness in a number of categories, led by a big drop in the volatile category of commercial aircraft.
