SPX: SEE CHART GET CHAIN FIND STRATEGIES
Today's event calendar focuses on political headlines, as no economic releases are scheduled.

European finance ministers will conclude a two-day meeting, potentially resulting in headlines from across the Atlantic. President Obama will make his State of the Union Address in the evening, which could direct attention to the possibility of fiscal deadlock in Washington. The speech will also likely mention firearms and solar energy, so those groups could be active tomorrow.

In earnings news, blue-chip Coca-Cola will report quarterly results before the opening bell.
