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

  • In Washington, the Labor Department reports on unemployment for February.
  • The Federal Reserve is scheduled to issue consumer credit data for January.
  • And if snakes are your thing, and why wouldn’t they be, Sweetwater, Texas hosts its annual Rattlesnake Roundup. Billed as the world’s largest.  

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