This Japanese economic indicator is used as a guide to GDP, it tracks economic growth across all sectors of the Japanese economy

That's where the 'all industry bit comes from'. You will sometime hear it referred to as monthly GDP

Comes in at an unchanged 0.0% m/m in July for a bit of a disappointment

  • expected was +0.1%, prior was -0.8%

Sub components showed construction and industrial production indexed lower on the month but tertiary index up a little

really just an input for background data
