|As the stock market continues to trade around all-time record highs, today's chart provides some perspective by illustrating the inflation-adjusted Dow since 1900 -- there are several points of interest. For one, while most major US stock market indices trade well within record territory (e.g. the Dow is currently trading 45% above its 1999 peak), when adjusted for inflation, the story changes. For example, the inflation-adjusted Dow trades only 3.2% above its 1999 all-time, inflation-adjusted record high. On a positive note, the inflation-adjusted Dow has just punched through the 16,000 level -- a level at which the Dow put in major peaks on its previous two attempts back in 1999 and 2007.Notes:
