Nikkei PMI

South Korea manufacturing PMI declines to three month low

TOKYO -- South Korea's manufacturing sector showed deterioration in May with weakening demand conditions cutting back output and the export market remaining fragile.

The Nikkei South Korea Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index, or PMI, sunk to a three month low of 48.4 in May from 50.2 in April. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion while a reading below 50 points to a contraction.
