Asia Markets: Asian markets fall on economic red flags as trade-war standoff persists

Asian markets slid in early trading Thursday amid new economic warning signs.

Amid recent reports that the U.S. will relax some Huawei sales restrictions, China is reportedly waiting to see what the U.S. actually does before committing to new negotiations.
