Sentiment was hurt by China’s widening crackdown of the technology sector and a statement from Beijing that the U.S.-China relationship was “now in a stalemate and faces serious difficulties” as high-level talks began. The comment sunk Asian markets as The Nikkei Index rose 285 points to 27,833, but the Shanghai Index tumbled -82 points to 3,467 and the Hang Seng Index plunged -1,129 points (or 4.13%) to settle at 26,192.
