The newest figures will surely play into the Fed's announcement and testimony this week. The producer price index (PPI), which measures pipeline costs for raw, intermediate, and finished goods, jumped 0.6% on the month, double the Dow Jones estimate. The PPI is considered a leading indicator of inflation as it indicates costs early in the supply chain. Growth-oriented areas of the stock market struggled with the news because they are expecting windfalls from lower interest rates in the future. Elevated rates have dashed, or at least delayed, those hopes. Retail sales, which posted a 1.5% gain year over year, were also reported last week. This was below the 3.2% increase in the CPI, a broad measure of inflation. The University of Michigan’s monthly measure of U.S. consumer sentiment was also released last week and came in lower than economists anticipated. Prices are still rising, and demand is slowing. Cause and effect. Investors await Fed meeting next week for more clarity on interest rates (https://www.wsj.com/finance/stocks/global-stocks-markets-dow-news-03-15-2024-0ce95baa?st=5q8z6fyuq73bt64&reflink=desktopwebshare_permalink) by Hannah Miao ** Your Life ------------------------------------------------------------ Changes in memory and thinking abilities are usually signs of mild or age-related forgetfulness and are often a normal part of aging. There are a variety of techniques that may help you stay healthy and deal better with changes in memory and mental abilities, like learning a new skill, following a daily routine, planning tasks or making a to-do list, staying involved in both physical and cognitive activities, keeping important items like wallets, keys, and glasses in the same place, and staying healthy. It is also important to understand the difference in characteristics between normal aging and dementia. Generally, it is occasional forgetfulness versus more regular forgetfulness. Keep in mind, too, that there are other things to consider as the cause of forgetfulness, like head injuries, issues affecting the brain, thyroid, kidneys, or liver, medication side effects, another mental diagnosis, and an unhealthy diet and lifestyle. More serious memory problems such as mild cognitive impairment, dementia, or other factors are caused beyond normal aging and should be checked out with a doctor.
