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. With this in mind, he outlined the stocks and events on his radar next week.
Monday: Banca Monte Dei Paschi bailout?
Somehow the bank that has survived multiple invasions by France and Spain, Napoleon and two world wars is broke. Cramer will be watching to see if the bank will be bailed out over the weekend, as there doesn't seem to be a plan to save it in its current form. The $48 billion that the bank has in public debt could take a big hit.
"When a bank goes bust in Italy, everyone connected with it gets hurt," Cramer said.
