The exchange-traded Energy Select Sector SPDR ETF , which reflects the performance of large oil-and-gas names, including Exxon Mobil Cop. and Chevron Corp. rose by 2.1%.

Elevated tensions between Washington and Beijing have created jitters across global markets, with investors fearing that a tit-for-tat tariff battle could devolve into a full-scale trade conflict.
