Japan manufacturers' mood goes down notwithstanding economic revival

In May, confidence among Japanese manufacturers headed south for the first time for nine months, having hit a decade-high level April, as a Reuters survey discovered,  demonstrating careful optimism in an emerging export-led economic revival.

The Reuters' monthly survey, tracking the Bank of Japan's major quarterly tankan, demonstrated confidence at service-sector firms. It reached a four-month peak, which is a hypothetical indication of a pickup in the country’s domestic demand.

The Reuters Tankan follows the previous week’s reports, which showed the Japanese economy expanded for a fifth straight quarter at the beginning of 2017, driven by exports along with private consumption. However, sluggish wage surge weighed on households.

In the survey of 527 large- and also mid-sized firms, carried out between May 9-19 in which 243 firms responded, in May, the overall sentiment index for manufacturers lost two points, tumbling to 24, suppressed by the food processing, chemicals industries and precision machinery.
