Lackluster retail sales and consumer sentiment data sent stocks skidding into the weekend, squashing any hopes that Wall Street's rally yesterday could have legs. Despite a triple-digit pop in the morning, the Dow ultimately shed 403 points, closing back below the psychologically significant 30,000 level. Nevertheless, thanks to yesterday's massive gain, the blue-chip index logged its second-straight weekly win. 

The Nasdaq and S&P 500 finished deep in the red as well, tagging weekly losses in the process. Elsewhere, the 10-year Treasury yield clocked a second-straight day above 4%, while the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) logged its highest weekly close since April 29.

Oil, Gold Prices Log Weekly Losses

Oil prices settled lower on Friday to record a steep 8% weekly drop. The general consensus among analysts that a recession is coming in 2023 is hurting the demand outlook for black gold. In turn, November-dated crude shed $3.50, or 3.9%, to close at $85.61 per barrel on the day.

Gold prices were lower as well, marking their worst close so far in October, as well as a 3.5% loss for the week. Red-hot inflation data made more aggressive interest rate hikes more likely, weighing on the yellow metal. December-dated gold shed $28.10, or 1.7%, to close at $1,648.90 an ounce for the day.
