Thank you. I thought most stock market indices were not created until the late 1800s. What do they use for pre-1800 data?

The tulip bubble occurred in 1637, where a few varieties of tulips were worth as much as a house:

I believe the quotes were taken from the official data of the time.

Do you know what the website means by "official data"? I could not find an explanation on the website.

The website's S&P 500 data begins in 1789. However, I checked and the S&P 500 index was created in 1957 and the Dow Jones index was created in 1885. The New York Stock Exchange was established in 1792, so the website must obtain their early data from somewhere else. Thank you!

Unfortunately I don't know where the Site has found the data of the S&P 500 since 1789.

If it may be useful to anyone, here you can download data in Down Jones' Metastock format from 1900 to 2002:
