    Japan Manufacturing PMI Improves To 46.6 In July - Jibun Bank



    The manufacturing sector in Japan continued to contract in July, albeit at a weaker pace, the latest survey from Jibun Bank showed on Friday with a manufacturing PMI score of 46.6.

    That's up from 45.2 in June, although it remains beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    The survey also showed that the services PMI fell to 45.0 from 45.4 in June, while the composite PMI was unchanged at 44.9.

    Individually, output, new orders, new export orders, employment, backlogs of work, output prices, input prices and future output all remained in contraction territory.

    South Korea Keeps Rate Unchanged; Cuts GDP Outlook



    South Korea's central bank left its key interest rates unchanged at a record low and downgraded its GDP outlook as authorities enhanced coronavirus containment measures.

    The Monetary Policy Board of the Bank of Korea decided to hold its key policy rate at 0.50 percent. As economic growth is expected to be sluggish and inflationary pressures on the demand side are forecast to remain weak due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Board will maintain its accommodative monetary policy stance, the bank said in a statement on Thursday.

    Policymakers observed that the recovery of domestic growth is likely to be slower than previously forecast due to the domestic resurgence of Covid-19.

    The bank forecast the economy to shrink 1.3 percent this year instead of 0.2 percent projected previously. Uncertainties around the future path of GDP growth are also judged to be very high, the bank said.

    At the same time, inflation outlook was lifted to 0.4 percent from 0.3 percent.

    It is forecast that consumer price inflation and core inflation will run at the mid-zero percent level this year, reflecting prolonged effects from the drop in global oil prices and weak demand-side inflationary pressures.

    With little space left for more policy rate cuts, the BoK is more likely to turn to unconventional measures, Alex Holmes, an economist at Capital Economics, said.

    Given that the Bank has already made a vague commitment to reduce "excess volatility" in long term bond yields, the most likely next step is an explicit yield target, which would be more effective in driving down long-term yields and supporting the economy, Holmes added.

    Hong Kong PMI Eases In August - IHS Markit



    Private sector business conditions in Hong Kong continued to worsen in August, and at a faster rate, the latest survey from IHS Markit revealed on Thursday with a PMI score of 44.0.

    That's down from 44.5 in July and it moves farther beneath the boom-or-bust line of 50 that separates expansion from contraction.

    Individually, output and new orders fell as faster rates, while supply chains remained under pressure. Business expectations remained negative.

    Further tightening of virus-fighting measures, including new limits on the size of public gatherings, dealt another blow to the private sector, with retail, entertainment and food establishments hit particularly hard.
