Shanghai: SSE Composite Index (.SSEC) fall ahead of new tariffs
Asian markets fell Monday after a steep decline in the U.S. technology sector weighed on Wall Street at the end of the week despite data showing the economy was growing.
Asian equity markets as it is have seen a soft start this morning, taking after last Friday’s US markets’ tone.

The U.S. and China set additional tariffs of 25 percent on $16 billion worth of each other’s goods on Thursday, marking a new escalation in an acrimonious trade war between the world’s two largest economies.
