From the Marketplace Datebook, here’s a look at what’s coming up Thursday:
- The Conference Board releases its monthly index of leading economic indicators.
- It’s the first day of spring. One springtime activity—the National Cherry Blossom Festival. It begins in Washington.
- And Mister Rogers fans, put on a nice sweater. Won’t You Be My Neighbor? Day is observed on the anniversary of Fred Rogers’ birthday.
