McConnell says a Trump pick to replace Ginsburg on Supreme Court would get Senate vote
Mitch McConnell, the Senate majority leader who refused to bring to a confirmation vote President Barack Obama's nominee to replace conservative Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia upon his death in 2016 because it was an election year, announced Friday in the wake of news of the death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg that President Donald Trump's selection to replace Ginsburg will get a Senate vote. McConnell argued in a statement that began by paying tribute to Ginsburg's 87 years of life and trailblazing career that the Senate majority in place at the time of Scalia's sudden death had been put there to oppose Obama, while the Senate majority currently in place exists to pursue the Trump agenda. Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer had moments earlier referenced McConnell's 2016 words in stating the view that the American people should have a voice, through their votes in the presidential election, in the selection of the next Supreme Court justice, which had a 5-4 conservative majority prior to Ginsburg's death. Election Day is 46 days away.

The LEI is a weighted gauge of 10 indicators designed to signal business-cycle peaks and valleys.

Stock-market benchmarks wipe out weekly gains amid Friday selloff but Tesla is a port in the storm
U.S. stocks on Friday were seeing heavy selling pressure, led by declines in large-capitalization technology-related companies. The selling action managed to erase weekly gains for the Dow Jones Industrial Average , the S&P 500 index and the Nasdaq Composite . On the day, the Dow was off 1.2% at 27,570, the S&P 500 index was trading 1.5% lower at 3,307, well below its 50-day moving average at around 3,343.34, according to FactSet data. The Nasdaq was nearly 1.8% lower on the session at 10,711. For the week, the Dow was down 0.4% for the week, the S&P 500 was seeing a 1.1% weekly decline, while the Nasdaq was on track for a 1.4% weekly loss. A weekly decline would represent the longest such streak since three weekly declines ended Oct. 4 of 2019 for the Dow and the S&P 500. For the Nasdaq, would mark the longest weekly losing streak since the four-week stretch ended Aug. 23, 2019. However, some stocks were maintaining altitude in the market, including popular Tesla Inc. , which was up 3% despite the broad-market downturn.

U.S. oil futures end with a modest gain for the session, but post a 10% rise for the week
U.S. oil futures settled with a modest gain on Friday, ending higher for the week after the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies reiterated their commitment to output cuts. Prices for the U.S. benchmark, however, ended below the session's highs, briefly turning lower for the session afterAljazeera reported that Libyan commander Khalifa Haftar announced a conditional lifting of a months-long blockage of oilfields and ports by the Libyan National Army. That fed expectations for higher global crude supplies. October West Texas Intermediate oil rose 14 cents, or 0.3%, to settle at $41.11 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Front-month prices rose 10.1%, marking the strongest weekly rise since the week ended June 5, according to FactSet data.
