Japan flash October manufacturing PMI demonstrates slower surge

In October, Japanese manufacturing activity kept expanding, but at a slower pace than last month. It’s because output as well as new orders surge headed south in a sign that final demand is actually moderating, as a preliminary gauge of activity revealed on Tuesday.

As a matter of fact, in October, the Markit/Nikkei Japan Manufacturing flash Purchasing Managers Index edged down to a seasonally adjusted 52.5 from September’s reading of 52.9.

For the 14th consecutive month the index was still above the 50 threshold, separating expansion from contraction.

Although still improving firmly, in October, the Japanese manufacturing sector happened to lose some momentum because surge dipped from September's four-month maximum.

Both new orders and output demonstrated softer expansion in Japan.

The output component of the PMI index inched down to preliminary a 52.6 from September’s 53.2.
