The market rally will be tested this coming week.

With Turkey's currency crisis in full swing, and concerns swirling about a Russian debt crisis, investors will have to weigh whether to push stocks beyond their late January highs. 

"The decline in the U.S. stock market was relatively subdued on Friday, but history tells us that when currency crises take place...and volatility picks up in the currency markets in a big way...it's only a matter of time before it spills over into the U.S. stock market," says Miller Tabak strategist Matt Maley. "Therefore, those investors who think that this issue will slide off the stock market's back like an egg in a teflon pan...just like the trade/tariff issue has for most of this year...will almost certainly be disappointed eventually."

Dow Jones Industrial Average futures fell 117 points on Monday as of 3:27 a.m. EST., S&P 500 futures dropped 11 points, and Nasdaq Composite futures declined 34 points.

Here are several key events on TheStreet's radar.
