The S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) started and ended in the red on Friday despite trading higher for much of the afternoon. As of the market’s close, the index was 0.04% lower at 6,791.50 points.

Its downfall was driven by the S&P/ASX 200 Utilities Index (ASX: XUJ), which was weighed down by the APA Group (ASX: APA) share price. The stock tumbled on news of the company’s expected final dividend.

The S&P/ASX 200 Energy Index (ASX: XEJ) also slumped 1% amid lower oil prices.

The Brent crude oil price fell 2.9% to US$103.86 a barrel overnight while the US Nymex crude oil price dumped 3.5% to US$96.35 a barrel.
