Brokers added that there would likely be no turnaround for the market ahead of the end of the week, following the release of key employment data from the U.S. on Friday, and, until then, the market here would largely mirror Wall Street's expected ongoing downturn.

"The next cue for a rally in U.S. stocks is the payrolls data on Friday. I expect shares in Tokyo to trend down until then," said Yutaka Miura Jed Lowrie Jersey , a senior technical analyst at Mizuho Securities Co.

In currency markets, the U.S. dollar dropped to 119.02 yen, compared to 119.61 yen logged in New York as investors backed away from riskier assets like stocks and opted for currency havens like the yen, which drives up its value against its global counterparts.
