Asian markets are falling down as concerns weigh on investors



Asian markets withdrew in early trade on Thursday, as geopolitical tensions and the reverse US Treasury curve weighed investors worried about a global economic downturn.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin expects Chinese officials to travel to Washington for renewed trade talks, but did not provide a timeline, Bloomberg News reports. He did not say whether a previously scheduled September meeting would take place. Mnuchin also told Bloomberg that the US does not plan to intervene in the US dollar market for the time being, although "situations may change in the future."
