During the past couple months of the COVID 19 crysis, Dow Jones had ups and downs. How badly has the virus impacted the global and the US economy? DJIA is definitely a key KPI to observe, but there may be some details to highlight.
We collected some material about Dow Jones’ last 10 years for those who are interested in long term investments. This material include:
- a brief history of Dow Jones in the last 10 years: what moved the index value? It is also important to know that it is not calculated from the same stocks as 10 years before. Everybody dealing with stock indices should remember that.
- an evaluation of Dow Jones’ average return in the last 10 years: of course you can calculate Dow Jones’ average return for the past 10 years. But how does it look like year-by-year? How steady/reliable was the rate of rise?
- a guide to download 10+ years historical data of Dow Jones for free, from a data source that we have trusted for more than 10 years. (You can use this downloaded data with Chartoasis Chili.)
