United States President Donald Trump has pledged to bail out the US oil industry after the US futures market plunged into negative territory for the first time ever on Monday.
That volatility saw US stocks close in the red for a second straight day.
The Dow Jones Index lost nearly 2 percent just after it began trading.
Al Jazeera’s Gabriel Elizondo reports from New York.
