China’s trade data, wasn’t positive for sentiment, with February exports falling 25.4 percent in U.S. dollar terms, while imports fell 13.8 percent, with both declines wider than expectations. The drop in exports was the largest on-year drop since 2009, according to Reuters.

Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 lost 0.41 percent, extending Monday’s 0.6 percent drop.
