Japan’s Nikkei fell on Monday morning as most cyclical sectors lost ground after a trade war between the United States and China escalated, while a drop in U.S. futures dented sentiment.

The Nikkei share average fell 0.5% to 21,237.71 at the midday break, while the broader Topix shed 0.1% to 1,547.56.

Mini S&P futures fell 1% during Asian trade, while the dollar dropped 0.3% at 109.650 yen, triggering a sell-off in Nikkei futures at one point.

The United States and China appeared at a deadlock over trade negotiations on Sunday as Washington demanded promises of concrete changes to Chinese law and Beijing said it would not swallow any “bitter fruit” that harmed its interests.
