About Dow Jones stock indices
The Dow is the oldest us stock index. The Dow Jones index was created by Charles Dow in 1896, editor of the Wall Street Journal, in collaboration with Edward Davis Jones. Initially, the base for the calculation of the index included 12 major us companies (now 30), the so-called blue chips.
Most popular stock market index Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA, Dow 30). However, the word industrial is rather a tribute to history. Many companies have long been not from the industry (for example, Coca-Cola, Microsoft and McDonald’s), and the companies that were part of it then, covered with dust for centuries.
The Dow Jones Transportation Average (DJTA) is the parameter characterizing the movement of stock prices 20 transport corporations (airlines, rail and road companies).

What is important to know about stock indices
The value of the stock index is not the price. This is a figure that characterizes the change in the index over time in relation to the initial value, i.e. an abstract figure. For example, the initial value of the Dow Jones index was 100, now 16115. And the value of the index SP500 today-1900. In indices, it is the dynamics of change that is important, not the value of the figure.
The most important thing is that the numbers of stock indices are increasing – the market is growing. The values of stock indices are decreasing – the market is falling.
The stock index is a very volatile trading instrument. Volatility is mobility, sharpness of movements. Moreover, the stock market – very unpredictable tools. Now he drops a stone down and an hour later it takes off with a rocket.
