Trade war worries relieved after news that the US government is taking a less hawkish approach to foreign investment limitations.  US leader wants Congress to allow the revised Committee on Foreign Investment of the US to have domestic technology protected. However, Donald Trump is reluctant to come up with a national emergency law against China, as one senior administration official revealed.

Market participants had been on edge for the last time over worries that US leader would restrict foreign investment into American technology businesses in the latest trade feud move.
