Forward, march

Rory Costello forwards the following:

My nominee is going forward, a filler phrase that has pervaded
the minds of everyone on Wall Street (always a lode of clunky jargon)
and has crept into the business media too, especially CNNfn and Bloomberg.
It’s implicit in almost any context in which it appears.Also, it seems as if the business media now insists on the unnecessary
use of by with verbs and amounts: “the German market was
up by 1.5%,” “raising interest rates by 25 basis points.”
