Dow Jones Industrial Average index – additional information

Along with the NASDAQ 100 index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is amongst the most well-known and used stock indexes in the world. DJIA index was created in 1986 by Charles Dow. It is second oldest U.S. index and one of the most important U.S. stock market indices. It reflects the performance of 30 of the most influential U.S. based companies from various industries, such as JPMorgan Chase, IBM and Walt Disney traded on New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ.

The year that the financial crisis unfolded, 2008, was one of the worst years of the Dow. It was also in 2008 that the largest ever recorded losses of the Dow Jones Index based on single-day points were registered. On September 29th of 2008, for instance, the Dow had a loss of 777.68 points, the largest single-day loss of all times. Since 2008, the index has been steadily increasing, registering a high of 17,823.07 in 2014. Yet the best years in the history of the index still are 1915, when the index value increased by 81.66 percent in one year, and 1933, year when the index registered a growth of 63.74 percent.
