It's not as bad as gold, but crude oil is taking a beating too as weaker-than-anticipated economic reports from China deepen demand worries. Goldman Sachs says it has closed its long position in Brent crude with a loss of ~15%, worried prices will come under more pressure as European refining capacity comes back online after routine maintenance. WTI -2.9% to $88.59, Brent -2.6% to $100.45.
