Asian Markets Slide; Data Eyed

Asian markets extended their losing streak Friday as investors moved to the sidelines ahead of some key economic indicators to be released later in the U.S. and China.

The Nikkei, which hit a low of 12,659 earlier in the session on account of a sharply stronger yen, pared back some of the losses to finish 0.2% below the flat-line.
