Oil-and-gas exploration ETF drops to all-time low as crude prices plunge

The SPDR S&P Oil & Gas Exploration ETF tumbled to an all-time low Friday as crude prices plunged following the collapse of talks on production cuts between the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies, led by Russia. The ETF was down 7.4% at $13.23 in recent action after trading at a session low of $13.13. Oil futures fell sharply after Russia resisted a call by OPEC for major oil producers to agree to additional production cuts aimed at stabilizing the crude market in the face of a potentially major demand hit from the global spread of COVID-19. Brent crude , the global benchmark, and West Texas Intermediate crude , the U.S. benchmark, were both down nearly 8% in afternoon trade. The XOP ETF was headed for a 13.9% weekly fall and has dropped more than 44% for the year to date. 1:05 p.m. March 6, 2020
