The Dow Jones Industrial Average , also called the Industrial Average, the Dow Jones, the Dow 30, or simply the Dow, is a stock market index, and one of several indices created by Wall Street Journal editor and Dow Jones and Company co-founder Charles Dow. We partnered as well with ProPublica , as we think that team, lead by our dear mentor Scott Klein, is doing outstanding investigative reporting with cutting edge data visualization, so Mariana Barbosa, former La Nacion Argentina master student and journalist, is joining the team to learn how to manage these investigations, where to start, how to drive the team, the story and how to create the best narrative serving the purpose of each investigation.

Real-time quote of the DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) and broader market information from CNNMoney. Dow Jones chart is the graphical depiction of the Dow Jones Industrial Average, also referred to as the Dow 30 or simply the Industrial Average. This chart is one of the main indexes of the US stock market and it indicates the trading performance of the 30 large publicly owned American companies during a standard session in the stock market.
This chart is available over different time frames like monthly, weekly, present monthly, historical monthly and so on. The Dow Jones chart is named after its two founders, Charles Dow and his business associate Edward Jones, and was published for the first time on 26th May, 1896, to represent the dollar average of 12 stocks from the leading American industries of that time.
This chart was meant as a progeny of the first chart also published by Charles Dow named Dow Jones Averages and therefore holds the honor of being the second oldest US market index. In this regard, any discussion pertaining to the Dow Jones chart would be incomplete without the mention of Black Monday which was on 19th October, 1987.
