Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), Closed Above 1,000 For The FIRST Time, This Day, 47 Years Ago; November 14, 1970.
That Dow ‘1,000’ was way before my time — in terms of investing. I was all of 17 and did not have any investments — other than a car.
Wow. The Dow closed today at 23,409. Up 22,409 points in 47-years, though we sure had our up-and-downs.
I started investing around 1985. The Dow was still flirting around 1,000!
I have been continually invested since 1985, though the amount I had invested as fluctuated. What a ride it has been.
Dow ‘1,000’ for the first time. Next year we will have Dow ‘30,000’.
