Start your trading day with this economic calendar in order to know the most important events with a deep impact on the financial markets. If you don't want to get suprised or hurt by very important news, you should even know certain events a week in advance in order to adapt your chart analysis and mark certain price levels in your trading software. There are important events in the markets you need to be aware of, which is:
- FOMC Meeting
- Fed/ECB rate decisions
- Natural Gas and Oil storage if you trade these commodities
Please bear in mind to not jump in the market just because of a certain news. It is better to stay away from the market when important news are being released. The economic calendar shows the current day by default. If you wish to change that just click in the top right corner on the calendar symbol and change it to the day you wish to see.
How to use the calendar
The first clumn shows the time of the event. By default you will see UK time, you can switch it to your time zone in the top right corner: GMT+8 for Singapore and GMT -5 for New York Eastern Time etc. The next column shows you the country/currency that will be affected by the news. The next column "importance" shows you the importance of the news: Stay away from the markets if you see 3 full colored bulls!
