Japan's Nikkei share average dropped on Thursday, clinging near to three-month lows touched earlier this month on growing anxiety the trade dispute between the United States and China will be prolonged and damaging to the economy.
The Nikkei fell 0.85% to 20,824, not far from its May 14 intraday low of 20,751.
But a break below that line, which will take the Nikkei to the lowest levels since mid-February, will further impact already weak market sentiment, he added.
The broader Topix slumped 0.94% to 1,522.03, near a four-month low of 1,508 touched in mid-May.
