Nymex crude oil futures drop 1.9% to end at $104.70/barrel, lowest since mid February, rattled by concerns about the ripple effect of a potential disorderly default by Greece as well as China's lower growth outlook. Shares of the big oilfield services firms - SLB -3.1%, HAL -3.2%, BHI -2.4%, WFT -4.1%, NOV -3.5% - are pushed well below their target prices.

    absurd to keep repeating the 'China lower growth' comment. If that is the reason, this market will be at 1,700 as Lazlo suggests when China report 9% growth numbers.

    I believe oil speculators may have been rattled by Congress asking for controls on excessive speculation. I do wish I knew where to find how much money rolled out of oil futures and into shorting equities.
