Dow Theory

Business / Taxes / Dow Theory: Dow theory maintains that major market trends depend on how the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) and the Dow Jones Transportation Average behave. They must move simultaneously in the same direction until they both hit a new high or a new low in order for a trend to continue. Some experts discount the relevance of this approach as a useful guideline, arguing that waiting to invest until a trend is confirmed can mean losing out on potential growth.
