The eternal question - can the stock market rally keep going?

"Are the good times rolling or is Armageddon near in the stock market?

Even in normal times, market predictions are polarizing, but these days, it's especially hard to make sense of all the noise coming out of Wall Street.

The market itself isn't making things easier. After hitting a record high in July, the Dow Jones Industrial Average turned negative earlier this month only to rebound into positive territory last week.

"The week ahead: Trading volume is typically muted this time of year as many investors enjoy the last few weeks of summer, but that doesn't mean things won't get interesting.

The Federal Reserve and other central bankers from around the world will descend on Jackson Hole, Wyoming late in the week for their annual gathering on economic policy. Federal Reserve Chief Janet Yellen will deliver remarks on the labor market on Friday. As usual, investors will be keyed for any clues as to when the Fed plans to raise interest rates.

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi will also speak Friday. Investors will be listening closely for hints as to whether the central banker is planning any stimulus program to combat Europe's persistently slow growth and feeble inflation."
