The Dow Jones Industrial Average, commonly known as the Dow Jones, is a stock price index based on thirty prominent stocks on the New York Stock Exchange.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average is the average of these thirty stocks, and is a commonly used indicator of general trends in the prices of stocks and bonds in the United States. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was first published by Wall Street Journal editor Charles Dow in 1896 with twelve stocks. The only stock of the original twelve that is still a part of the Average is General Electric.
