The Nikkei Japan Services PMI came in at 52.0 in March 2019, little-changed from the previous month's 52.3 and slightly below market consensus of 52.1. New orders rose the most since the series began, despite a subdued growth in new export business, and the rate of job creation accelerated for a second month to the strongest since last August. At the same time, backlogs of works fell fractionally. On the price front, operating expenses rose the most in five months, due mainly to higher labor costs, while output price inflation rose to an eight-month high. Lastly, business confidence weakened to its lowest in 18 months, with some companies expecting the consumption tax hike to have an adverse impact on growth prospects.
