is the Dow Jones?
refers to the Dow Jones Industrial Average, which is a scaled
average of thirty of America's top stocks. The second oldest
American stock index, it is often listed with the S&P 500 index
in financial summaries.
purpose of the Dow is to give an idea of how the overall American
stock market is doing. However, with only thirty companies in
the average it may not be a perfect representation of the market.
Even so, it has been an important and popular index for over
one hundred years.
If the Dow has gone up 150 points, that means it has gone up
to 10,150.00 if yesterday's closing value was 10,000.00. That
represents a gain of 1.5 percent.
Some companies that have been in the Dow the longest include
GE (1907), ExxonMobil (1928 as Standard Oil), 3M (1976), IBM
(1979), and McDonald's (1985). Some of the other popular companies
include Boeing, Coca-Cola, Walt Disney, Wal-Mart, The Home Depot,

you can take advantage of it in other ways, including buying
some of the companies included in the index or by trading ETFs
and mutual funds based on the Dow.
