Navigating the Calendar:

Understanding the economic calendar’s structure is crucial for traders to extract maximum value. Given the global nature of the forex market, a comprehensive calendar allowing custom filtering by country and currency is essential. Key elements to note include:

  • Event Details: Brief descriptions, scheduled dates and times, and values for “previous,” “forecasted,” and “actual” figures.
  • Market Impact: Forecasted and previous values impact market sentiment and price movements, aiding traders in anticipating reactions.
  • Event Categorization: Events are typically categorized by impact level (high, medium, low), with high-impact events significantly influencing global markets.
  • Timing: Ensuring alignment with local time zones to avoid miscalculations when entering or exiting the market.


Top Events to Monitor: Certain economic events significantly influence currency markets. Traders should closely monitor events such as:

  • Central Bank Interest Rate Decisions
  • Consumer Price Index (CPI)
  • Purchasing Manager’s Index (PMI)
  • US Non-Farm Payroll (NFP)


Trading Strategies: While the economic calendar provides abundant information, traders must develop effective strategies for incorporating this data into their decision-making process. A popular approach involves:

  • NFP Report Trading Strategy:
    • Observation Period
    • Candlestick Analysis
    • Directional Trade
    • Risk Management


Managing Risk: High-impact news releases can lead to slippage, making risk management crucial. Traders often exit positions minutes or hours before a report release to avoid unpredictable market liquidity drops.


Alternative Data: Acuity’s AI Economic Calendar acknowledges the importance of alternative data sources in the digital age. For example, the Bank of England uses natural-language processing to analyze help-wanted ads, showcasing the potential of alternative data in understanding economic trends.
