The yuan edged lower against the dollar on Monday as fresh tensions between Beijing and Washington sapped appetite for the Chinese currency, even as investors eyed longer-term prospects of improving ties under a Biden presidency.
The Trump administration is looking at moves that would restrict 89 Chinese aerospace and other companies from buying a range of U.S. goods and technology, according to a draft copy of the list of firms seen by Reuters.
