A pumpjack operates as a drill rig sits on a well pad in the Bakken Formation in Williston, North Dakota.

(Updates story with closing index, commodity and stock prices, and commentary from Pictet’s Luca Paolini.)

Energy stocks plunged Monday after Saudi Arabia said it would lower prices and increase production even as demand for oil has weakened.

The scope of the bloodletting was epic.

The S&P 500 energy sector tumbled 20%, as West Texas crude oil for April delivery /zigman2/quotes/211629951/delayed CL.1 +0.95%  fell 25% to settle at $31.13 a barrel. That was the largest one-day price drop for oil since 1991.

Among broader indexes, the Dow Jones Industrial Average /zigman2/quotes/210598065/realtime DJIA +1.12%  skidded 2,014 points (or 7.8%) to close at 23,851.02. The S&P 500 Index /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.56%  was down 7.6% and ended 18.9% below its Feb. 19 closing high. The Nasdaq Composite Index /zigman2/quotes/210598365/realtime COMP +0.22%  dropped 7.3% Monday.

William Watts explained how Saudi Arabia’s oil shock rattled global financial markets. Here’s a list of banks with high levels of credit exposure to the energy industry.

“We will see a bear-market rally in the short term” following Monday’s “brutal action,” Luca Paolini, chief strategist at Pictet Asset Management in London, said in an interview.

Even so, investors won’t see a bottom for U.S. stocks until domestic economic reports begin to show signs of weakness, he said.

“About 40% of the global economy is contracting,” including China, Japan, Italy and several other countries, he said.

Expanding our review to the S&P 1500 energy sector (drawn from the S&P 500 Index /zigman2/quotes/210599714/realtime SPX +0.56% , the S&P Mid Cap 400 Index /zigman2/quotes/219506813/composite MID +0.75%  and the S&P Small Cap 600 Index /zigman2/quotes/210599868/delayed SML +2.23% ), here are the 45 U.S.-traded energy stocks that fell at least 30% Monday:
