You can just buy DIA... "Diamonds" track the DJIA almost perfectly. You can
buy it the same why you'd buy shares of IBM or GE. Lots of people invest or
trade DIA's.


SPY tracks the SP500
QQQ tracks the Nasdaq 100
and there are many more exchange traded funds like this that allow you to
buy "the market" in one easy trade and low cost.
