Not my field of expertise, but I think that is a bad graph. The bottom half of the vertical height shows how the DJIA got up to "1000". The top half of the vertical height shows how the DJIA got to "14000".
Adjusting the scale that way seems like a good way to tell the story that you want to tell.

The graph is logarithmic. You see these commonly with financial and earthquake charts. Ironic? :-)
