The two biggest Asian economies showed mounting concerns about global recovery. As a result, the stock markets went down.
The Bank of Japan’s decision to shift to negative interest rate in January’s meeting has not been advantageous. This is due to the fact that Japanese economy keeps posing weak. The Tankan surveys of business conditions were published in early trade. They indicated that the sentiment among largest manufacturers and non-manufacturers deteriorated to the lowest in nearly three years.
The index gauging for the health of manufacturing sector only stood at 6. This was as much as half compared to the data of the previous two months. The gauge for non-manufacturing sector also drop to 22 from the level of 25 recorded in January and February. Both readings could not reach the expectation of the market, which is 8 for the former and 24 for the latter.
The weakened demand from foreign markets and strengthened Yen led to the retreat in Japanese business sentiment. This not only made the already gloomy situation worse, but also put more pressure on PM Abe to boost his on-verge-of-recession rebound.
The Chinese official factory gauge showed improving conditions for the first time in eight months with the PMI index recorded at 50.2 in March. Meanwhile, the non-manufacturing PMI surged to 53.8 from 52.7 in February, the highest number in the last three month.
This improvement is suggesting that the government’s fiscal and monetary stimulus is kicking in. a significant rate cut in jobs is raising another concern despite Beijing’s attempt to cut industrial overcapacity without spurring massive layoffs.
