Dow Jones Industrial Average Annual Total Returns from 1936 to 2021: Chart

A while ago I book marked a fascinating article on stock market history with interesting stats and charts at Albright Capital. One of the charts that caught my eye is the histogram chart showing the Annual Total Returns of the Dow Jones Index from 1936 to 2021. Since 1983 the US market has been up 83% of the time. It gets even better with the market up 12 years and down just 1 year since 2009.
