NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The Dow Jones Industrial Average of 30 blue-chip U.S. companies has historically given investors something to be thankful for during the week of Thanksgiving: money.Buying into what is known as the Thanksgiving Rally could earn you profits that make up for Black Friday shopping on Apple iPhones, Coach bags and Vizio LCD TVs. The rally, often used as a short-term trading strategy, was coined after a 35-year trend whereby the stock market would pop on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving Day and the Friday afterward.
