Asian markets were mixed in early trading Tuesday, as investors grew wary as they waited for more details about last week’s agreement for a partial trade deal between the U.S. and China.

Doubts emerged Monday amid reports that Chinese officials wanted more talks before signing the so-called “phase one" deal. U.S. tariff hikes on about $160 billion in Chinese goods, scheduled to take effect in December, are apparently still on track, although tariff hikes on $250 billion of Chinese goods that were to take effect this week were postponed. A more comprehensive trade deal will come in three phases, President Donald Trump said, with the mode divisive issues to be tackled at a later date.
