Chart Of The Day: Dow Breaks Through...7500?

My clients often hear me harp about inflation and the importance of looking at returns and performance on a real basis (taking out the impact of inflation). Today's Chart Of The Day comes compliments of the folks at Zero Hedge. While everyone was celebrating yesterday's close above 10,000 for the 12th time (by my rough count) in the last decade, let's not lose sight of the fact that the Dow is down 25% over the last 10 years when adjusted for the value of the dollar.
