Crude oil surged to the highest in 17 months amid efforts to cut production, pushing up the outlook for global inflation and sending 10-year Treasury yields above 2.5 percent for the first time since October 2014. Chinese equities tumbled.

China's Shanghai Composite Index sank the most since June as a gauge of smaller companies in Shenzhen plunged more than 5 percent.
