    I am trying to find a site that shows daily Dow Jones numbers. From where it started on a given day, the amount (percentage or number, preferrably both) point change and the ending price for that given day.


    That's not "too" difficult, but the issue is trying to find opinion papers that tell WHY something changed for that given day.

    I'm needing several months prices and opinion/summaries.

    Thank you for any help! I'm contacting the library to see if they have an archive of Wall Street Journals, but not too hopeful on that one.

    Goldman Sachs is pretty easy. SEC filed Charges against them on April 16th of 2010: http://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/2010/lr21489.htm

    Settlement
    was reached July 15th 2010: http://www.sec.gov/litigation/litreleases/2010/lr21592.htm

    Chart
    of Stock prices for GS, 2010: http://online.wsj.com/quotes/main.html?type=djn&symbol=GS (`1-year' chart: pretty obvious monthly response - daily closing prices to dump into Excel? You'll find them by and by). There was more going on, of course. The blow was a glancing one, but the scam was one where causation and correlation, re: pricing, shake hands.

    More opinons about this particular grift than there are to read. Goldman is also an equal opportunist schmoozer of politicians. Could see another drop in January when Wiki-leaks dumps the `bank paper'. I'd guess this will coincide with the release of the Final Report of the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission: http://www.fcic.gov/news/pdfs/2010-1117-Report-Media-Advisory.pdf but, we'll see.​

    This may not help the OP but don't you think it possible that the Wikileaks guy could have invested in those banks that don't get slammed by his long awaited leak?? He's had whatever it is he has for months, and he has told everyone when he will release it! Way to mess with the market.

    Fully concur with you on Goldman.....


    OP - if you want a better read on the economy look at the Baltic Dry Index. The market fluctuates based on emotion and is prone to manipulation. The Baltic Dry is straight reporting, either things are shipping or they are not shipping.


    PS look on BYC for the thread on economics and the thread about unemployment! There is some good discussion on those!!

    Thank you all! I couldn't find this thread and I did a search for it...

    It kept saying "No Hits"...so I went searching manually. Not so cool with the search function not working...

    I have WHAT in my yard? :

    http://money.cnn.com/data/markets/dow/

    It
    shows the daily plus archives and articles along the right hand side analyzing.

    Is there any way to get the archived articles to go with the price histories?​
