U.S. crude ends down 2 pct, posts weekly loss

NEW YORK, Oct 5 (Reuters) - U.S. crude futures fell 2 percent on Friday and posted a loss for the week as a fragile global economy and uncertainty about Europe's debt crisis countered any support from a better-than-expected U.S. employment report.

U.S. November crude fell $1.83, or 2.0 percent, to settle at $89.88 a barrel, having traded from $89.01 to $91.71. For the week, crude lost $2.31, or 2.5 percent.
