The Nikkei Japan Services PMI rose to 52.4 in October 2018 from 50.2 in the previous month. The latest reading pointed to the sharpest rate of output expansion since April as new business growth quickened to near five-and-a-half-year high amid restoration efforts following the natural disasters which occurred during September. Outstanding business declined despite a softer expansion in employment, while firms retained an optimistic view towards future output. "November PMI data will be important to assess whether the stronger monthly improvements in output and new business are knee-jerk reactions," Joe Hayes, Economist at IHS Markit, said. Services Pmi in Japan is reported by Markit Economics.
