We also get weekly jobless claims today, and pending home sales. Also likely to impact markets today: Europe reaches a massive deal to avoid Greek default.. after a tense overnight of negotiations.. so far market reaction has been positive.

We're getting to the final witnesses in the manslaughter trial of Michael Jackson doctor Conrad Murray. Adam Housley covering.

The death toll from that earthquake in Turkey still rising.. now above 500.. as another person rescued alive from the rubble!
