Why Traders Care
The Economy Watchers Survey asks those who are employed in business cycle-sensitve sectors about their sentiment on the current and future economic conditions of the country. Therefore, traders regard it as a leading indicator of the economy's health and consumer confidence. A figure above 50 is usually bullish for the yen as it would indicate positive economic outlook while anything lower indicates pessimism.
