U.S. stocks closed lower Friday, pressured again by falling oil prices, which drove the indexes to weekly loses of more than 3.5%—the second straight week of declines.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 178.74 points, or 0.7%, to 24,285.95, the S&P 500 index off 17.37 points, or 0.7%, at 2,632.56, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 33.27 points to 6,938.98, a decline of 0.5%.

Markets were driven lower by pressure on oil. U.S. oil on Friday registered the worst day in about three years. January West Texas Intermediate crude slid $4.21, or 7.7%, to settle at $50.42 a barrel, representing the worst day since July 6 of 2015 and the lowest settlement since Oct. 9, 2017.

U.S. Treasury yields also fell Friday, following the drop in European debt yields, due to tepid economic data. The 10-year Treasury note yield gave up 1.6 basis points to 3.045%, its lowest since Sep. 17. The German 10-year bond yield fell 3.1 basis points to 0.339%. Trading in German government paper can influence yields for Treasuries as both share safe haven status among investors.

Bond yields fell across Europe after a raft of lackluster eurozone data. Germany’s gross domestic product fell by 0.2% in the third-quarter, the first negative reading since early 2015. And the eurozone composite purchasing manufacturer’s index for November slipped to 52.4, its lowest in nearly four years.
