We do note that oil spiked a little into the close amid some OPEC/Saudi jawboning...(but still ended down 6% on the day)

Saudi Arabia and OPEC are inching toward a compromise between pleasing the U.S. with policies that won’t lead to price spikes and throttling back the flow of its oil to rebalance oversupplied global markets. The solution the cartel is considering: A production cut that doesn’t look like a production cut. Under such a scenario, the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries would announce plans to retain current output targets, first set in 2016. That move would imply a production pullback because Saudi Arabia is overproducing by nearly 1 million barrels a day, according to people familiar with the matter.
