From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Wednesday:  

  • The Federal Reserve issues its Beige Book summary of commentary on current economic conditions.
  • 35 years ago Jupiter got its close-up when Voyager 1 made its closest approach to the planet. The spacecraft’s journey continues. It has since entered Interstellar Space.
  • And tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.
