Dow Jones 1900-2008 Chart (Updated)

Update: Please see the latest charts as of December 1, 2008 in the post titles Dow Jones 1900-2008 Charts (More Updates). [1] The update includes both logarithmic and arithmetic charts of the Dow to date.

This is the latest update of the chart I’ve put together that shows the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) from 1900-2008. The chart is very simple, without the fancy graphics, but shows the rise in prices from the 1990s to today (as well as the unwind we are going through now). This chart starts January 3, 1900 and is updated through the market close November 21, 2008.

The post Charts To Show That Markets Don’t Always Go Up [3] has the original chart, plus some snapshot charts from times along the 1900-2008 continuum to illustrate how market cycles work.
