Japan’s gross domestic product advanced a seasonally adjusted 0.1 percent on quarter in the fourth quarter of 2017, the Cabinet Office said in Wednesday’s preliminary reading.
That was shy of expectations for a gain of 0.2 percent and down from 0.6 percent in the third quarter.
On an annualized basis, GDP gained 0.4 percent – again missing expectations for 1.0 percent and down from the downwardly revised 2.2 percent increase in the three months prior (originally 2.5 percent).
