Over the course of this past week, markets were largely driven higher as the result of some amazing Dow earnings. Roughly one-third of the Dow reported this past week, and the index has reached over 23,000, with potentially 24,000 on the horizon. The Nasdaq and S&P 500 hit new highs during this time as well.
