August 16, 2012:  Today, the DJIA (charts and current quote) closed at $13,250.  The exchange traded fund, or ETF, for the DJIA is called "Diamonds" with ticker DIA.  Today DIA has a ttm (trailing twelve month) yield of 2.42% according to Yahoo! Finance.  According to " US Treasury Rate Quotes at a Glance" the 10-year yields 1.83% while Yahoo! finance shows it at 1.84%, which is what I use for my graph.
