Indices inside out

Stock indices are the backbone of market analysis, no doubt. Financial journalist realised that in 1884, when he revealed his first index to the public – the Dow Jones Railroad Average. It included 11 stocks, the New York Central and Union Pacific, among them. 12 years later, in 1896, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) as we know it today came about. Meanwhile, the S&P 500 emerged in 1860 and many more since. According to the Index Industry Association, today there are 2.96 million indices worldwide, with a ballooning value of ETF assets of over $5.4 trillion. Join 1Market and tap into it.
