In  a sign of spreading economic weakness, the Commerce Department reported Wednesday that orders to factories for big-ticket manufactured goods declined by 0.4 percent in October. It was the third straight drop, the longest stretch of weakness in nearly four years. Sales of existing homes fell for the eighth consecutive month in October, with median home prices falling by a record amount.
