What is the Dow Jones industria index?

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is probably the most widely followed index that measures how the stock market is performing. The Dow Jones Industrial Average has been in use since being constructed by Charles Dow in 1896. Although the index consists of only 30 large blue chip companies, over time the Dow Jones has been a remarkably accurate barometer of the overall performance of the stock market. The Dow Jones average is maintained by private companies who determine which companies to add or delete from the Dow Jones index components. The keepers of the Dow Jones strive to include stocks that best represent the overall US economy. The Dow Jones Average is sometimes criticized for being calculated on a price-weighted basis since the price change of a stock with a high price will have more of an impact on the Dow than a lower priced stock. Nonetheless, the Dow Jones Industrial Average has withstood the test of time and it is unlikely that the method of calculating daily changes in the Dow Jones will be changed. Almost all of the companies included in the Dow Jones would be recognized by most Americans due to their size and interaction with millions of consumers on a daily basis. Some of the most widely recognized companies in the Dow Jones Index include American Express, AT&T, Coca-Cola, General Electric, The Home Depot, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Nike, Procter & Gamble, Travelers, Verizon, Wal-Mart, and Walt Disney.
