US Stock Market Plummets With New Virus Variant Worries

Oil prices post largest daily decline of 2021 with 12% loss, VIX volatility index soars 54%

Major indices in the US stock market plummeted on Friday to close with massive losses in half-day session after Thanksgiving Day, as a new coronavirus variant caused worries among investors.
