DJIA at 25,000 before reaching 20,000


As of the close of trading on 21 December 2018, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) sat at 22,445.37.

The DJIA is a stock market index that indicates the value of 30 large, publicly owned companies based in the United States, and how they have traded in the stock market during various periods of time. The Industrial portion of the name is largely historical, as many of the modern 30 components have little or nothing to do with traditional heavy industry. Along with the S&P 500 and the NASDAQ Composite, it is one of the most influential and scrutinized US equity indices.

Will the DJIA hit 25,000 before it next touches 20,000?

Resolves positively if the DJIA ever reaches an intraday level above 25,000 before reaching an intraday level of 20,000; resolves negatively if the inverse is true; and resolves ambiguously if (before either condition is met) the DJIA is discontinued or altered to such an extent that, in the view of a Metaculus administrator, it is no longer reasonable to continue this question.
