The stock market has a habit of both directions, and recently it has been to the downside. There was a slew of headlines last week:

  • Fed hikes interest rates by 0.75 percentage points for the second consecutive time to fight inflation
  • GDP fell 0.9% in the second quarter, the second straight decline, and a strong recession signal
  • Widely watched yield curve at most inverted in decades after Fed hike
  • Microsoft misses estimates but stock up 5% on rosy guidance

While most of it wasn't good news for the stock market, except perhaps positive corporate outlooks, it wasn't as bad as the market had feared. The market rallied to close July up the most in a month since November 2020.

Long allergy seasons can cause more allergies and asthma attacks. In 2010, AAFA and NWF created a report on the impact of climate change on Americans with asthma and allergies. This report talked about how climate change will affect pollen, mold, and poison ivy. More pollen, mold, and poison ivy can increase the risks of asthma and allergy attacks. Climate change can also make air pollution worse. This can increase the risk and severity of asthma attacks. AAFA has three things you can do to be proactive in reducing your risks and impact of climate change.
