Japan's Nikkei fell on Wednesday as weak machinery orders dragged down shares of machinery makers and exporters, while worries about Britain™s exit from the European Union kept investors risk averse.
The Nikkei share average slid 1.4 percent to 21,199.78 points by the midday break, after surging 1.8 percent the previous day.
Japan's machinery orders fell in January at the fastest pace in four months due to declining demand in the auto and telecommunications equipment sectors as the U.S.-China trade war dented global demand. The 5.4 percent drop from December was much larger than expected.
