It looks like it started with a downtrend.:)


In the book: The Right Stock at the Right Time Prospering in the Coming Good Years by Larry Williams, are published some statistics from 1871
of the Index: S & P Composite Stock Price Index, whose data he took from this site:


this page is no longer there, but the home page is of the Nobel Prize: Robert J. Shiller (Co-Winner of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Economics):

so I believe that the data published in the book of Larry Williams are reliable.

Probably at that time this was the reference Index, and only later became the S & P 500.

Also on this page by legendary trader Dan Zanger, there is this chart showing that as early as 1870 there was a Stock Market Index that later became the S & P 500:
