TABLE-Japanese manufacturers least pessimistic since July 2019 in Jan – Reuters Tankan

(Click on JP/TAN1 for main story)

TOKYO, Jan 18 (Reuters) – Sentiment among Japanese manufacturers improved to its least gloomy since July 2019 in January, while that of service-sector firms worsened, as businesses remained hampered by COVID-19 disruptions, the Reuters Tankan survey showed on Monday.

The Reuters Tankan index readings are derived by subtracting the percentage of respondents who say conditions are poor from those who say they are good. A negative reading means that pessimists outnumber optimists.

Following is a table of indexes for key sectors and a comparison with the Bank of Japan’s quarterly tankan survey:
