Oil Futures Notch Nearly 9% Weekly Rise

Oil futures recorded an 8.6% weekly win, with support coming as Russia's plans to cut oil output amid Western nations' price caps on the country's crude products. For the session, March-dated crude rose $1.66 cents, or 2.1%, to settle at $79.72 per barrel.

Gold prices, meanwhile, turned in a second-straight week of losses, pressured by a stronger U.S. dollar and rising Treasury yields. April-dated gold shed $4.00, or 0.2%, to settle at $1,874.50 per ounce today, and 0.1% for the week.
