Japan Manufacturing PMI Continues To Contract In January

The manufacturing sector in Japan continued to contract in January, albeit at a slightly slower rate, the latest survey from the IHS Markit revealed on Monday with a manufacturing PMI score of 48.8.

That's up from 48.4 in December, although it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

Individually, the indexes for output and new orders saw further declines, while export demand dipped - although the downturn showed signs of easing.

Business confidence was at its highest level since August 2018.

Trading in leveraged currency contracts comes with substantial risk. You must be aware of these risks before opening an account to trade. High leverage amplifies gains as well as losses, leading to potential loss of the entire account balance. Trading in leveraged currency contracts may not be suitable for every investor. Never speculate using money that you cannot afford to lose.
