Dow Jones Chart (1900-2004)
Its along the same concept of a chart we did back in 2003 -- only this one includes P/E ratios, which is a very instructive addition to the graph:
click for an enormous chart:
"Officially licensed and designed by Minyanville's own Kevin Tuttle, follow the critters through the historical ups and downs and sideways trails of the Dow Jones Industrial Average from its humble beginnings of the last century up to the present day 'Ville."
I may have to get me one for my office wall!

Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Dow Jones Chart (1900-2004):
Take a look at this larger version of the chart.
Now I have a question. Take a look at the P/E ratio portion of the chart on the bottom. According to the chart, the most recent P/E ratio is still ABOVE 22 for 2004.
BUT if you look at the current Dow Jones ETF (DIA) The current P/E ratio is only roughly 15.
The Diamond trust series ETF is an excellent proxy for the Dow Jones average.
Is there a problem with his numbers for this chart or am I missing something.
Why is his chart showing a current P/E ratio of 22, while the Diamond Trust series ETF which is composed of Dow Industrial companies to mirror the Average showing a p/e ratio of 15. (It was roughly the same for 2004 I remember)
