    GLOBAL MARKETS-Asian shares down on slowing China growth, trade war

    Asian shares fell on Monday, brushing off a firmer Wall Street lead, as data showed China's economy and factory production growth slowing, compounding wider fears about Beijing's worsening trade war with Washington. China's economy grew 6.7 percent in the second quarter of 2018, cooling from the 6.8 percent growth registered in each of the previous three quarters. While the GDP figures were in line with market expectations, the new data also showed slower-than-expected growth in China's industrial output, pointing to slowing momentum and prompting some analysts to call for stronger government measures to support growth.

Official data released Monday showed China's economy grew 6.7 percent in the second quarter of 2018, in line with market expectations, and cooling a bit from the 6.8 percent growth registered in each of the previous three quarters.
