Market Preview: Stock futures are higher ahead of the re-open following the two-day Sandy-induced closure, with the S&P benchmark +0.5%. Some analysts expect an over-reaction - would it be Mr. Market if there wasn't? - and high volume as traders get all that pent-up demand off their chests. Sectors that are likely to get some attention include insurers, airlines, retailers and home suppliers. And then there are all those earnings to deal with. Later: Fed's Williams, USDA Ag. Prices.
