Asian Stock Markets Fall Sharply amid Fears of US-China Trade War

TOKYO – Key stock markets in Asia fell sharply on Friday due to fears of a possible trade war between the United States and China.

In Japan, the Tokyo Stock Exchange’s Nikkei index fell 974.13 points to 20,617.86, a decline of 4.51 percent.

At times the Nikkei was down by more than 5 percent, weighed by Wall Street’s fall on Thursday.

In China, the Shanghai stock exchange closed down 110.72 points or 3.39 percent to end the session at 3,152.76.
