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.
