Dow, along with Dow Jones, and DJIA, is one of the most commonly accepted abbreviated terms used to describe the Dow Jones Industrial Average, an index used to determine how stocks are trading. Dow uses an average of the thirty largest publicly held companies to determine its report, and was created by nineteenth-century Wall Street Journal editor and Dow Jones & Company co-founder Charles Dow.
