Best month in a decade

Turns out this past October was one of the best months for stocks in a decade.   Popular wisdom holds however that October is usually a bad month for investors.   However, I subscribe to Mark Twain's view of stock investing:
"October: This is one of the particularly dangerous months to invest in stocks. Other dangerous months are July, January, September, April, November, May, March, June, December, August and February."
