Japan Corporate Service Prices Rise 0.8% In October

An index measuring corporate service prices in Japan was up 0.8 percent on year in October, the Bank of Japan said on Tuesday, standing at 96.2.

That was shy of forecasts for an increase of 0.9 percent - but it was up from the 0.7 percent gain in each of the previous two months.

On a monthly basis, corporate service prices were flat for the second straight month.

Among the individual components of the survey, prices were up for finance, real estate and other services; prices were down for transportation and leasing.
