The Nikkei 225 Index Performance

1914-2005

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun, is the world's largest-selling business daily.

The Nikkei Stock Average is Japan's most widely watched index of stock market activity and has been calculated continuously since September 7, 1950. (Before that date, the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) calculated the Tokyo Stock Exchange Adjusted Average Stock Price, so index-based measurement of the market actually goes back to May 16, 1949.)

The current calculation method, called the Dow Jones method, has been used since 1950. The 225 components of the Nikkei Stock Average are among the most actively traded issues on the first section of the TSE. The index reflects the ex-rights-adjusted average stock price.

On February 1, 2002, the Nikkei 225 fell below the Dow Jones Industrials Average for the first time since 1957.  Click here for more information.
