The Dow Jones chart (^DJI) is all screwed up because of two simple little mistakes: May 12, 1995 April 11, 2000
The Dow Jones chart (^DJI) is all screwed up because of two simple little mistakes:
May 12, 1995
April 11, 2000
April 10, 2000 - DOW Jones hit 1,110,000?
The graph of the dow jones industrial index has a bad data point on Apr 11 2000. The decimal point is wrong, causing the scaling of the graph to make it unusable. It has been this way for quite a while, please fix it
You still haven't corrected the historical data on your DJIA chart in APril of 2000. Results in unusable graphic if the bad data is included.
Why is the data for the charts of the DOW still incorrect for Tue. Apr. 11 2000 with the Volume at 112,870,800 and the value at $1,110,248.0
There's an out-of-place decimal in the data for April 11, 2000 in the Dow Jones historical data.
The interactive chart for the Dow Jones does not seem to work before May, 2000.

It is still not fixed after several years. msn.com has a great chart if you need it to go back before 2000.

This is not "soon" anymore...
Someone just has to fix a few data points -- how hard is that?
maybe this is a sign to short yahoo ?
How long does it take to replace decimal points in two numbers? Well, 5 months and counting...
still no fix
About Dow Jones Industrial I think little bit finished all I want to review all the past,present and past present tense to all issue even I finished that I try to back where I got the solution because every try can add knowledge.

The error is in the DJIA and it makes any DJIA graph which includes April 11, 2000 unreadable.
Specifically, the "interactive charts" value for the DJI for April 11,2000 was mis-typed as 1110248.00. From the preceding and following values, it is obvious that the decimal point was omitted, and the value should be 11102.48! Surely this is a simple fix!
one month later... no solution yet...

This seems easy to correct. Why has it not been remedied?
No you didn't fix the problem. The data is correct but the scale defaults to amounts that make the chart un-viewable. This still needs to be addressed.
This is a very obvious and annoying mistake...It is amazing that this still has not been corrected
Your data for the Dow Jones chart April 11 2000 is totally incorrect by a factor of about 10, for both volume and value($) please correct
This is probably why it's been impossible to get a rational plot for "max" on the DJI for a year or more. Before that, it tracked all the way back to the 1920s. Now it flatlines because it's flattening all the data out to fit under a 25,000% y-axis. One or more bad data points would throw it into this display, but it's amazing that nobody has complained or fixed it in 12+ months that I know it's been broken.
The May 12,1955 value should (probably) be 4,393.55 or thereabouts.
OOPS ... I found another: on Apr 11, 2000 the quote of 1110248.00 should probably be 11102.48.
