SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Asian shares fell on Monday morning, while gold prices held firm as investors worried a prolonged Sino-U.S. trade war could tip the world and U.S. economies into recession.
In early trade, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.17%, after Wall Street broke a three-day winning streak to end lower on Friday.
Australian shares dipped about 0.1% while the South Korean market clawed back from early losses to rise 0.12%.
U.S. shares finished lower on Friday after U.S. President Donald Trump said that Washington was continuing trade talks with Beijing, but that the U.S. was not going to make a deal for now.
Those comments helped to drive a late sell-off in a volatile session that saw the Dow Jones Industrial Average fall 0.34%, the S&P 500 lose 0.66% and the Nasdaq Composite drop 1%.
