How to read the calendar

For each macroeconomic event,

  • you can read its value from the recent release (on the right),
  • the value that is expected by analytics (in the middle),
  • and finally, the most current value (on the left).
As a trader, you should be interested in the discrepancy between the current (left) and expected (middle) values. The bigger the discrepancy the bigger impact on the market.


Events are categorized as follows:

Most impactful​

Once released, they can affect markets significantly.

Moderately impactful​

Lesser impact -still able to affect markets after released.

Least impactful

Low impact affecting markets is not probable.
