TikTok filed for an injunction Wednesday to stop President Trump from banning the video-sharing app from being downloaded, an action that is expected to happen Sept. 27 unless a deal involving Oracle Corp. and Walmart Inc. is completed. President Trump issued an executive order last month that sought to ban TikTok and WeChat, a messaging app owned by Tencent Holdings Ltd. , due to their Chinese ownership. WeChat managed to receive an injunction through the court system to stop its ban, as TikTok attempted to strike a deal for a new corporation in the U.S. that would be partially owned by Oracle and Walmart. That deal is still in doubt, however, so TikTok and Chinese parent company ByteDance filed for an injunction Wednesday. "If allowed to

Natural-gas futures rallied Wednesday, finding support from reported disruptions from storm-related flooding to liquefied natural gas facilities in Texas as well as signs of strong demand.

U.S. benchmark prices failed to reclaim the $40 mark as fresh lockdown measures in Europe, amid a rise in coronavirus cases, fed expectations for weaker energy demand.
