European stocks open lower as global coronavirus cases top one million
European stocks slipped and U.S. equity futures pointed to a weaker session on Friday, as investors braced for more bad news on the American job front and coronavirus cases worldwide topped one million. The Stoxx Europe 600 index dropped 0.4%, alongside a similar loss for the German DAX 30 index , while the FTSE 100 index fell 0.7%. After a positive session for Wall Street on Thursday, Dow Jones Industrial Averages futures fell 181 points, or 0.9%, to 21,077. S&P 500 and Nasdaq-100 futures eased around 0.8%. Oil prices pared back some of Thursday's gains that saw West Texas Intermediate crude jump nearly 25% and Brent crude climb 21%. Those contracts were off 1.7% and 0.3% respectively. Oil's rally was sparked by a tweet from President Donald Trump who predicted Saudi Arabia and Russia would agree to significantly cut oil production. Investors are waiting for March nonfarm payrolls data from the U.S., after data Thursday showed a record 6.6 million Americans filed for unemployment claims due to shutdowns from the coronavirus outbreak.

Dow futures pare loss but hang lower after Friday jobs report for March shows a stunning 701,000 losses
U.S. stock-index futures on Friday were trading lower, briefly adding to losses on the session, after a report on the state of jobs for the month came in much worse than expected, already revealing early impacts of business closures due to the coronavirus outbreak. Futures for the Dow Jones Industrial Average were off 72 points, or 0.3%, at 21,192, those for the S&P 500 index were down 0.3% at 2,508, while Nasdaq-100 futures were falling 0.4% lower at 7,599. indicating a lower start for the Nasdaq Composite Index . The grim report shows that unemployment jumped to 4.4% from 3.5% in February and comes after a report on jobless claims on Thursday hit a record 6.6 million for the week. Economists polled by MarketWatch had expected losses of 83,000 for March. The reported decline in employment was the biggest in 11 years and one of the largest ever, but it's going to get dwarfed by the job losses in April. In reality, given the past jobless claims report, total unemployment is closer to 10 million, which would represent an unemployment rate of around 10%.

Trump to host Big Oil executives at White House to discuss market slump
U.S. President Donald Trump will meet with oil company executives at the White House on Friday to discuss a historic oil-price slump threatening their businesses, brought on by the coronavirus outbreak and a Saudi-Russia price war. Trump said on Thursday Saudi Arabia and Russia had agreed to cut output by an unprecedented 10 million to 15 million barrels per day (bpd), representing 10% to 15% of global supply, after he discussed the issue with their leaders. Trump said in a press conference that he made no concessions to Saudi Arabia or Russia and did not agree to a U.S. production cut.

As oil sinks, some companies float idea of 'zero clause' in trades
After the worst quarter for oil prices in history, some oil producers have begun to include protection in their contracts to avoid being forced to pay buyers for the oil they pump if prices slide below $0 a barrel. Crude prices in key physical markets - including the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe - have fallen through $10 a barrel, far below comparable futures prices, as demand slumps and storage fills. Oil prices have been hammered by the collapse in demand after the coronavirus outbreak and the sudden end of an OPEC-led supply reduction pact.
