This is an abbreviation of Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) which has been created by Charles Dow more than 100 years ago. Initially, it only included 11 companies belonging mainly to the railway industry.

Now, the index consists of, on average 30 of the best quality and most tradable stocks that are mostly at the top in their industries; however, despite the name, this index is not restricted to just industry. The composition of this index is permanent, and it is changed very rarely mainly due to acquisitions among the companies included.

Dow Jones is the oldest index in the United States, and is a general indicator of general trends and investors’ decisions on the capital market.
