Ben Bernanke Speaks at 10:00 AM ET on Friday (8/21) about the year’s crisis.

Next week watch for a break of 1020 or 980 on the S&P as those are the current support and resistance levels. If we break lower look to retrace back to at least the 980 level, if not further to the $945 area. If we break higher, the 50% retracement would be our target with a price of $1,121 on the S&P.
