  • Prior 0.0%; revised to -0.2%

The data is often referred to as the monthly GDP reading, it's a tracker production across all sectors of the Japanese economy and follows the GDP growth figures/trend.

A decent bounce following the tepid reading seen in July. But it's not a release that changes much for the Japanese yen on the day. Low-tier data. USD/JPY holds steady near the highs now at 112.62.
