The Dow Jones Industrial Average acts as a scoreboard for investors.  It provides an easy way for investors to tell whether the market has had a good or bad day.  But from time to time, investors need to recalibrate what those big moves mean.  After all, a 100 point move today doesn’t mean what it used to.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is an unmanaged index.  An investment cannot be made directly an index.  Returns are not guaranteed. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

Recalibrating the 25  Worst Days For the Dow

If we were to state the 25 worst days for the Dow Jones Industrial Average, this is how they would look.  The 25th worst day, would equate to a drop of about 1,700 points.  The worst day ever, would be a drop of over 5,600 points.

 

Yes you saw what you thought you saw….

There is a picture in the video of the scoreboard from the end of the Ohio State victory over their rival on November 24.  We were there to witness such a momentous occasion.  But just in case, here is the photo again.
