STOCKS/ ECONOMY

-Stock futures are down after the Dow Jones Industrial average closed about 36 points shy of the still-elusive 20,000 mark Friday. A downward move in crude prices is the biggest reason for the lower futures right now.

OIL/ ENERGY

-U.S.crude prices are down about 2 percent to the $52 a barrel level. This is in response to ramped-up U.S. production.

DEALS/NO DEALS
