June E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading higher late Tuesday, but inside the previous session’s range. This typically indicates investor indecision and impending volatility. It could also be an indication of a developing shift in investor sentiment as they try to build a new higher bottom amid an easing of tensions over U.S.-China trade relations.

At 19:21 GMT, June E-mini NASDAQ-100 Index futures are trading 7462.25, up 70.25 or +0.97%.

The catalyst behind Tuesday’s rally is the news that the U.S. temporarily eased restrictions on Chinese telecom giant Huawei. Chipmakers that suffered steep losses on Monday are recovering nicely with Micron Technology, Qualcomm and Xilinx all posting gains of at least 2%.
