Dow 25-Year Moving Average Graph
2010 End-of Year Stock Market Update. 100 Years of Stock Market History for the latest 100-year chart w/o moving average.
A Critical Area on the Dow?
To my knowledge, this is not a widely followed metric. In the history of the Dow, I see only four previous periods when we have been in this area:
- The Great Depression -- the 1932 & 1937 troughs in the graph (For more on this period in stock market history, see 1929-32 Crash Revisited)
- World War II -- the 1940-43 trough
- The Vietnam War/ Oil Crisis years culminating in the 1974 trough
- The high inflation era culminating in the 1981 trough
The moving average closed out 2009 at 6559.
Note: the Dow bottomed 5 days later on March 9, 2009 at 6547.
