As Jim Cramer prepared for the stock market roller coaster to continue next week, he found one event on Monday that could be a harsh wake-up call for investors.
"As early as Monday we get some news that could potentially stop this rally in its tracks, or at least, that's what it would have done not too long ago," the "Mad Money" host said.
The financial system in Italy is on the verge of collapse, and no one seems to care, Cramer said.
Additionally, if the Federal Reserve announces no rate hike on Wednesday, Cramer expects a sell-off in bank stocks. However, Cramer is ready for the rate hike. He wants to hear that the Fed sees better growth and will tighten even more in the future.
"Chairwoman Yellen, bring on your quarter point hike — we're ready for you!" Cramer said.
