The Nikkei is looking at a fourth straight session of losses after poor earnings announcements from the U.S. and after the yen strengthened against the euro and the dollar.
Asian markets are also taking a hit on concerns that Greece will need more debt restructuring which the Troika – the ECB, IMF and European Commission – might not agree to.
Here's how the markets look:
Japan's Nikkei 225 is down 1.18%
Korea's Kospi Index is down 0.96%
Australia's S&P/ASX 200 is down 0.59%
China's Shanghai Composite is down 0.13%
Hong Kong's Hang Seng is down 0.35%.
