      Economic calendar FAQ

      What is an economic calendar?

      An economic calendar is a diary that lists the upcoming economic releases and events that are likely to move markets in the coming weeks and months. It’s an essential tool for traders, helping you plan your strategy around when your chosen markets might be highly volatile.

      How do I use an economic calendar?

      By default, the City Index calendar will show you all the potential market-moving events in the coming days – including how important each event is, plus its previous and consensus figure.

      By tapping ‘SHOW FILTERS’, you can tailor the calendar to your specific strategy. For example, you can choose to only see events from certain countries or categories. You can even choose to only see events that are expected to deliver high volatility.

      Tap on any event for more information.

      Why should I use an economic calendar?

      An economic calendar enables you to plan your trading around key market-moving events. This is important for any trader, as economic releases can quickly change market conditions and may throw your existing strategy off course.

      Some traders steer of the markets entirely when economic data is due to be released; others see the heightened volatility as the best time to trade. Either way, knowing precisely when events are set to land is key to trading successfully.
