Dow

The most widely used 

Indicator

 of the overall condition of the 

Stock market

, a price-weighted 

Average

 of 30 actively traded 

Blue Chip

 stocks, primarily industrials. The 30 stocks are chosen by the editors of the 

Wall

 Street 

Journal

 (which is published by 

Dow

 Jones & Company), a practice that dates back to the beginning of the century. The 

Dow

 was officially started by Charles 

Dow

 in 1896, at which time it consisted of only 11 stocks. The 

Dow

 is computed using a price-weighted 

Indexing

 system, rather than the more common 

Market

 cap-weighted 

Indexing

 system. Simply 

Put

, the editors at WSJ add up the prices of all the stocks and then divide by the number of stocks in the 

Index

. (In actuality, the divisor is much higher today in 

Order

 to 

Account

 for stock splits that have occurred in the past). also called 

Dow

 Jones Industrial 

Average

 (DJIA).
