Chip stocks are on the move Tuesday thanks to reports of an upcoming announcement from President Joe Biden’s administration.

According to these reports, the Biden Administration is preparing to place additional limitations on China’s access to U.S. semiconductor technology. This would build on previous efforts by the government to reign in China’s industrial plans.

The reports claim that the new rules will keep China from getting some of the best chip production technology from the U.S. That includes any tech used to create 14 nanometer or better semiconductors, reports Bloomberg.

The recent reports also alleged that the Biden Administration will codify restrictions recently placed on Advanced Micro Devices (NASDAQ:AMD) and Nvidia (NASDAQ:NVDA). Let’s take a look at how this news is affecting these chip stocks below!
