Crude Plunges on Recession Concerns and Dollar Strength

Nov WTI crude oil (CLX22) on Friday closed down -4.75 (-5.69%), and Nov RBOB gasoline (RBX22) closed down -12.35 (-5.08%).  

Crude oil and gasoline prices Friday sold off sharply, with crude plunging to an 8-month low and gasoline falling to a 2-week low.  A rally in the dollar index Friday to a 20-year high undercut energy prices.  Also, the energy markets are worried about a global recession due to the sharp increase in global interest rates.  In addition, a slump in global equity markets Friday curbed confidence in the economic outlook and was bearish for energy demand.
