DJIA: From Inauguration to Friday Before (Re?) Election Day: Obama, Up 67%; Bush Down 5%

Graphic below shows one of those comparisons I don't recall seeing in the news:

  • From inauguration until the Friday before (re?)election day, under Obama the DJIA is Up 65%, Under Bush It Was Down 5%.   
  • From start to end of Bush Presidency DJIA Was Down 25%, from 10.578.24 to 7.949.09.
(Note that inauguration day in 2001 was on a Saturday so I used first stock market closing date after the inauguration).
