Asian stocks slip amid trade worries and Hong Kong protests

Cathay and Swire Pacific slide after regulator orders restrictions on Cathay crew

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian stocks edged lower in holiday-thinned trading on Monday, as caution over intensifying Sino-American trade tensions and mounting concerns over the fallout from weekslong protests in Hong Kong dampened sentiment.

The Nikkei Asia300 Index slipped 0.3% to 1,223.84 on Monday. Financial markets in India, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines were closed for local holidays.
