Asia Markets: Asian markets retreat; Hang Seng sinks amid Hong Kong protests

Asian markets were mostly lower in early trading Wednesday, after the Dow Jones Industrial Average DJIA, -0.05% snapped a six-session winning streak.

The major indexes on Wall Street gave up early gains and ended the day slightly lower. On the trade front, President Donald Trump took credit for holding up U.S.-China trade talks, saying he has “no interest” in a deal unless China agrees to terms it had previously agreed upon. “We’re going to either do a great deal with China or we’re not going to do a deal,” Trump told reporters Tuesday.

Japan’s Nikkei NIK, +0.04% was mostly unchanged.
