US shares ended the week lower, despite a small recovery on Thursday, as investors fretted over falling oil prices and a strong US dollar.

The dollar rose by 1.42% against the euro.

A strong dollar can hurt US companies' profits, as they get less from their overseas earnings after currency conversions.
