5 Trades to Take as the Market Returns to Normal

BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Investors are chomping at the bit to get back onto the trading floor today, as Hurricane Sandy dissipates over the Great Lakes. Even though it's Halloween today, investors are showing no fear over equities for once this quarter, as buyers make their presence known on Wall Street.

Maybe we've got the new month to thank for that.

>>5 Bargain Stocks to Buy Before 2013

November's first trading day kicks off at 9:30 a.m. tomorrow, and that fact alone bodes well for stocks. As I've mentioned a few times this year, the old adage of "new month, new market" has held very true in 2012, with key inflection points in the S&P 500 matching up with well with calendar months. Since November is historically a strong month for stocks (December is too, for what it's worth), the start of the eleventh month of the year is likely to bring some seasonal upside.

So, with all that attention on Mr. Market again today, we're taking a technical look at five stocks you need to see as trading returns to normal.

So, without further ado, let's take a look at five technical setups worth trading now.
