Japan – Nikkei / Markit Manufacturing PMI for May (final) 53.1 (‘flash’ 52.0)

Japan – Nikkei / Markit Manufacturing PMI for May (final) 53.1
A good jump for the Japanese manufacturing PMI in May over April, and a solid gain from the preliminary reading a week ago (for May).  Indicators on the Japanese economy are mostly stacking up into the positive side of the ledger. Wages growth is still a black hole, though.
