Today’s Chart of the Day illustrates the Dow Jones Industrial Average adjusted for inflation going back to 1925. After one of the best month’s in the history of the stock market, I think it’s important for a little history lesson. According to ChartOfTheDay.com:
“When adjusted for inflation, the bear market that concluded in the early 1980s was almost as severe as the one that concluded in the early 1930s. Also, the inflation-adjusted Dow is up 145% since its 1929 peak and trades 74% above its 1966 peak – not that spectacular of a performance considering the time frames involved. It is also interesting to note that the Dow is up 86% from its March 9, 2009 low which is actually slightly more than what the inflation-adjusted Dow gained from its 1966 peak to today.”
