History of the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index

 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJIA) was created by Wall Street Journal editor and the Dow Jones & Company creator Charles Dow and Edward Jones. Mr. Dow and Mr. Jones compiled the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index in order to gauge the performance of the industrial components of The United States of America's stock markets. The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index was first published on May 26, 1896. At that time, the Dow represented only 12 various industrial stocks. General Electric is the only remaining original company still in the Dow Jones Index today.

 

Today the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index is the most widely followed stock market in the world. The Chicago Board of Trade hosts the Dow Jones futures and options pits and gives investors a choice of full size or mini contracts. The mini contract is half the size of the full contract.

Indices can be either price-weighted such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average or capitalization-weighted like the Standard and Poor's 500 Index. In a price-weighted index, individual stock prices are simply added together and then divided by the divisor. Stocks with higher prices have a higher weighting. In a capitilization-weighted index, the company with the highest total dollar value of its stock has the highest weighting.

 

In today's volatile stock market conditions, many savvy stock investors use the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index futures and options to hedge their portfolio risks against stock market declines.
