If the Dow Jones 30 can close the week positive, it will mark the seventh straight week of gains in this highly-followed US stock index. The Dow 30 has climbed over 5,000 points since last October, a 29% gain in one year.

Supporting the DJIA this week are major components like Caterpillar (CAT) and 3M (MMM), both continuing their climbs on strong 3Q earnings. 

With big cap industrial movers like CAT and MMM, plus US banking leader JPMorgan Chase (JPM) making new highs, the Dow's uptrend is intact and has been propelled higher (despite the persistent "crash" callers).  



The Dow is also helped by the recent strength in chip bellwether Intel (INTC), which has just climbed to a 16-year high, and Microsoft (MSFT), which is trading at new all-time highs.

So while the naysayers neigh, the US stock market continues its upward climb. We are in the midst of a powerful, multi-year bull market; it's time to respect the message of the market and position ourselves accordingly. 

Stay tuned...

Here are some highlights from William O'Neil's interview withIBD:

William O'Neil's interest in the stock market began when he started working as a young adult. 

"I say many times that I didn't get that much out of college. I didn't have much interest in the stock market until I graduated from college. When I got married, I had to look out into the future and get more serious. The investment world had some appeal and that's when I started studying it. I became a stock broker after I got out of the Air Force."
He moved to Los Angeles and started work in a stock broker's office with twenty other guys. When their phone leads from ads didn't pan out, O'Neil would take the leads and drive down to visit the prospective customers in person.
