Gifted Class and the Stock Market

After reaching into near record territory last week, the stock market fell 214.28 points on Wednesday. Analysts say a strong rise in consumer prices pushed the Dow Jones industrial average to its biggest point drop since January 20.
Classes at the Pgh Gifted Center are coming to a close today.
