If you are new to our reviews, this post will help you choose the best Forex calendar (or calendars) to use in your analysis and trade scheduling. I recommend reading the entire post in this case.

If you trade based on fundamental analysis or employ a news trading strategy, then an economic calendar is an indispensable tool for you. If you are a technical analysis trader or price action scalper, you can use economic calendars to your benefit for spotting the periods of the day when it is best to avoid trading due to periods of high uncertainty, which is usually connected to important macroeconomic announcements.

Even though modern trading platforms feature economic calendars right inside the trading terminal, it is much more convenient for traders to consult a web page calendar via their browsers — either on a desktop or using a mobile device. Also, while many Forex brokers offer a calendar on their website, the quality of broker-provided calendars is usually well below what you get at websites specializing in this sort of information.

The 11 Forex calendars presented below have proven to be the finest, both in form (easy to read, fast to browse, and pleasant to the eye) and in terms of content (lots of events, powerful filtering, additional features), and stand out from the hundreds available online nowadays. Despite lots of similarities, the calendars reviewed below have distinct traits that will make them more useful to some traders — it is in a trader's best interest to find one, two, or even three calendars that most fully suit his or her trading style.

The list

The 11 top calendars below are introduced in alphabetical order and then assessed according to their parameters and special features. Forex Calendar in 2021

Trading Economics Economic Calendar in 2024



Although the basic elements of the calendars are almost unchanged across all websites — the name of the event, its date and time, the country of origin, forecast, and previous and actual values — each calendar attempts to improve its data presentation using various methods of visualization and applying its own unique design and style.


To make the calendars more compact, the websites use various icons, images, codes, and abbreviations to display the list of events. A legend, similar to those used on maps, can accompany a calendar to describe such elements. However, not all the calendars provide a legend, and not all of them are equally helpful.

  • provides no legend.
  • DailyFX provides a sort of legend via its event filtering menu.
  • Dukascopy provides no legend.
  • Econoday provides a complete legend for all icons used throughout the calendar.
  • Forex Factory has a very detailed legend with an explanation of icons and abbreviations used.
  • FXStreet doesn't have a legend per se but offers a textual description of the calendar, which will help you to understand how it works.
  • has a brief legend for key elements used in the calendar.
  • has calendar filter settings that also pass for being a sort of a legend.
  • Myfxbook doesn't offer a legend for the calendar.
  • also describes most of the non-obvious stuff with its filtering options.
  • Trading Economics offers a rather poor legend, which is mostly a textual description and does not cover all the styling features used in the calendar.

Images/currency codes

Calendars use a currency ISO code, a country flag, or a country ISO code to show the origin of each of the listed events.

  • utilizes country flags and 3-letter currency ISO codes.
  • DailyFX utilizes only country flags and names.
  • Dukascopy utilizes country flags and 3-letter currency ISO codes.
  • Econoday employs country flags and 2-letter country codes.
  • Forex Factory uses only 3-letter currency ISO codes.
  • FXStreet employs a country flag along with a 3-letter currency ISO code.
  • uses a country flag along with a 3-letter currency ISO code.
  • uses a country flag and a 3-letter currency ISO code.
  • Myfxbook uses a country flag and a 3-letter currency ISO code.
  • displays info using country flags and names.
  • Trading Economics uses country flags along with 2-letter country codes.

Additional details

As mentioned before, the basic information provided by an economic calendar for each event is the following: date and time, country/currency, name of the indicator or event, and previous/forecast/actual values. All of the listed calendars also provide a news impact measure of some sort. Some calendars choose to augment this data with additional details.

  • provides a detailed description of some events/indicators with a link to the source and the frequency of releases. The icon in the Details column indicates whether the report has a detailed description. To view the description, if it is available, you need to click on the icon.
  • DailyFX provides historical data, related news links, and a textual description.
  • Dukascopy provides for the vast majority of events only a historic chart, which includes forecasts, with a maximum lookback period of about ten years or slightly more. Select few reports also provide the basic explanation of important indicators, frequency of news release, name of the data source, and alternative name/significance of the event.
  • Econoday gives a detailed explanation of the indicators, release schedule, last released data, and an in-depth study of recently released data. There is also a quick link named Why Investors Care, which describes the importance of the indicator for the economy. The link provides additional details such as the frequency and approximate time of release, original data source without a link, revision methodology, and, finally, a period that the report covers.
  • Forex Factory shows an elaborate explanation of the indicator, a link to the official source page and the report itself, historic data and chart, related news articles, the next release date, an explanation of why it is important, and the indicator's full name and alternative names (if any).
  • FXStreet provides a definition of the indicator, a link to the official report, an explanation of why the indicator is important for traders, the source name, frequency of the release, the date of the next release, links to the related news, a historic chart with forecast and deviation plots, historic data, and elaborate market impact charts for major currency pairs (see the Extra features section below).
  • offers a description of the indicator, a link to the official source page, and a very detailed historic data/chart spanning decades into the past.
  • provides a description of the event, a link to the official source page, the next release date, a reference to the previous release, a chart of the recent data vs. forecasts, a historic data chart, and a historic data table.
  • Myfxbook provides a link to the source page, a textual description of the event, the date of the next release, how many days to the next release are left, a historic chart of the data vs. forecast values, and historic data.
  • provides only a basic description of the indicator with a link to the official source page.
  • Trading Economics offers a detailed explanation of the indicator, a link to the official source page, a historic chart (with a quick chart view directly in the calendar table), a data table, and related news.


Historic data assists in the study and interpretation of the economic data announced recently. Most of the charts show some amount of historical data related to the concerned economic event. However, the level of interaction possible with the chart differs from calendar to calendar. This section makes an attempt to assess the quality of the charts provided by the economic calendars.

  • does not offer charts.
  • DailyFX offers a small historic chart with about a year's worth of past data: DailyFX - Calendar Historic Chart in 2021
  • Dukascopy offers a scalable line chart providing the actual and forecast values for the past few years for a given indicator. Dukascopy - Calendar Historic Chart in 2021
  • Econoday doesn't offer any charts.
  • Forex Factory shows a scalable interactive histogram chart with all values — actual, forecast, and revised. The problem with the revised data representation on the chart is that its color (dark blue) mixes with the actual data presented in light blue. You have a choice between a bar or a line chart. Forex Factory - Calendar Historic Chart in 2024
  • FXStreet provides a zoomable chart for historic data analysis with an option to add forecast and deviation values: FXStreet - Calendar Historic Chart in 2022 Three additional charts are available also (more on them in the Extra Features section below).
  • offers a scalable chart with a period selector and a switch between line and area. The data (actual, forecast, and revision), along with the date of the announcement, is shown when the mouse pointer is moved over the chart. - Calendar Historic Chart in 2021
  • provides a very simple historic line chart with forecast and actual values. Pointing the mouse cursor over will show the exact value. - Calendar Historic Chart in 2021
  • Myfxbook provides a zoomable historic line chart with forecast and actual values. Pointing the mouse cursor over will show the exact values: Myfxbook - Calendar Historic Chart in 2022
  • does not offer charts.
  • Trading Economics provides an interactive chart with a period selector and some basic charting tools: column, spline, areaspline, stepline, line, and area. Only actual values are plotted. You also have a choice between viewing the actual value, the change in absolute value, and the percentage change. The chart provides the facility for comparison with other countries and events. Trading Economics - Calendar Historic Chart in 2024


Most of the actual announcement values are calculated by governments (or other reporting institutions) using partial data. Because some of the data gets updated or new data is coming later, the revised values are released with the next reports.

When new data is announced for an indicator, simultaneously, the revised value (corresponding to the previous period) for the same economic indicator is reported. Most economic calendars display such revised information in a different color. There are also calendars that provide both revised and unrevised values for the trader’s convenience. Approaches of different economic calendars to revised values are explained below.

  • shows revised values, marking them with an asterisk. On mouseover, the 'revised from' value is displayed. Unfortunately, not all events get revisions displayed with this calendar.
  • DailyFX displays revised values. If the value was revised, it will be displayed either in blue (if the revision was positive) or in red (if the revision was negative). You can see the original value in the Previous revised from section if you click on the report.
  • Dukascopy shows only original values.
  • Econoday shows both unrevised and revised values, but you have to click on an event to get to them unless you watch a daily view.
  • Forex Factory gives revised values alongside a small yellow triangle. Moving the mouse pointer over the triangle reveals the previous value.
  • FXStreet displays revised values alongside a small round gray bullet with the letter ‘i’ in the center. The previous value is revealed by placing the mouse pointer over the icon.
  • shows revised values with a dotted line underneath. Placing the mouse pointer over the number reveals the previous unrevised value.
  • displays revised values with a dotted underline. The original values are displayed in a tooltip.
  • Myfxbook displays revised values with a dotted underline, while the tooltip reveals the original value.
  • displays only original values.
  • Trading Economics shows revised values and uses a circled ‘R’ symbol next to them. On mouseover, the original data is revealed.


Using a filter, a trader can prioritize the list of events to monitor as per personal needs. Nearly all calendars offer these three basic filters:

  1. Countries/currencies
  2. Nature of event
  3. Impact

We shall look at the specific filters offered by each of the economic calendars taken here for assessment. allows filtering based on currency, impact, and session (London, New York, Tokyo, and Sydney). The currency filter offers a selection of 9 currencies (AUD, CAD, CHF, CNY, EUR, GBP, JPY, NZD, and USD). By default, all the currencies, news events, and sessions remain selected. Remember Filters option can be used to make the website remember your choice of filters, but you have to register if you wish to use this feature.

DailyFX supports only country and impact-based filtering. It does not offer an event-based filter. However, a keyword-based event search facility is provided. In total, 41 countries are available for selection in the filter list:

Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Colombia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Euro Area, European Union, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, South Africa, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States.

Forex Factory offers currency, impact, and an event-based filter. There are nine currencies in the filter: AUD, CAD, CHF, CNY, EUR, GBP, JPY, NZD, and USD. You can also search for specific events using a keyword search function.

FXStreet offers all three filters — country, impact, and event. The calendar also offers a keyword-based event search. You can also choose a period for which to show the filtered results, though you can no longer set a custom date but have to choose between the predetermined periods. While you can choose a custom period outside of filters, the keyword search will not work in that case.

There are 50 countries and one monetary union in the country filter:

Expand the list of FXStreet countries offers all three kinds of basic filters — country, impact, and event. Furthermore, there is also a time-based filter to view the actual display time or the time remaining for the announcement. Event-based keyword search is also possible.

Time zone

A trader may or may not be located in the same time zone used by the economic calendar to display the schedule of economic announcements. Thus, it is a good idea for the Forex calendars to display their active time zone and to allow synchronization of the server time with the computer’s clock. The economic calendars tackle this issue in the following manner.

  • — detects local time and uses it to display the schedule of events. The local time settings can be changed using the drop-down menu but cannot be saved permanently.
  • DailyFX — detects your time zone. The settings can be changed using the drop-down menu and will be remembered via cookies.
  • Dukascopy — detects and uses your local time to display the schedule of event announcements. You can toggle between Local and GMT. There is no way to save the choice, and it is impossible to select any other time zones.
  • Econoday — uses EST/EDT as the default time settings. However, it offers a provision to change the time zone as you want and save it in a cookie file.
  • Forex Factory — detects your local time zone by default. You can manage the time settings with or without registration. The calendar uses cookies (for unregistered users) and member profiles (for registered users) to remember the time zone.
  • FXStreet — uses GMT as the default. Time zone can be changed (including to autodetect) both for registered and unregistered users. The website will remember the choice regardless of your registration status.
  • — default time zone is EST/EDT. The time zone can be changed but not saved without registration.
  • — by default, detects the time zone via your browser. It can be changed and saved even without registration.
  • Myfxbook — by default, detects the time zone via your browser. You can change your time zone without registration, but to save it, you have to open a free account with Myfxbook and save the time zone in your account settings.
  • — automatically detects local time and uses it to display the event announcement schedule. If the time settings are changed using the drop-down menu, then the latest setting (saved in cookies) is used when opening the economic calendar during the next visit.
  • Trading Economics — automatically detects your time zone settings and applies them to the economic calendar. You can also set an arbitrary time zone, and it will be saved for your next visit even if you do not register.

Time browsing

Forex traders might need to browse through past economic data or look at the future schedule of events for a variety of reasons. Thus, every economic calendar strives to offer such a facility, albeit each in its own way.

  • — you can choose to browse either by day or by week. The actual browsing is done by a kind of page flipping or by selecting a particular week from a drop-down list, though to see the list, you have to narrow the browser window. You can also set a week and a year you want in the browser's URL address. BabyPips Calendar - Time Browsing
  • DailyFX — you can view the events using four time presets: yesterday, today, tomorrow, and the next 14 days. Additionally, you can select one specific day via a calendar, but you cannot set a date range: DailyFX Calendar - Time Browsing
  • Dukascopy — you can browse through dates, months, and years. However, the maximum listing range is 60 days. There is also a provision to manually enter the beginning and end date. As usual, there are quick links for viewing the events scheduled for today, tomorrow, this week, and next week. Dukascopy Calendar - Time Browsing
  • Econoday — follows a very simple approach to facilitate calendar browsing. At the top of the event table, three quick links for browsing monthly, weekly, and today's data are provided. Beneath the quick links, two rows containing sequential dates and months of a calendar year are displayed. Unfortunately, the links work only for the current year. To see the last year's reports, a direct link is required. For example, to view US non-farm payrolls in 2023, one can go to the May 2023 NFP report and change the fid parameter up or down by 1 to see the next or the previous report. It is a very inconvenient method by itself but also makes it almost impossible to guess the necessary fid figure without having a direct link to the event you need or at least to a similar event the same year. For example, here is a link to the May 2024 NFP report. The fid figure is almost completely different, and there is no apparent way to know how much you need to subtract or add to it if you wish to see a similar report (let alone a completely different one) for a different year. Econoday Calendar - Time Browsing
  • Forex Factory — provides an easy and flexible calendar-based browsing facility. It is possible to browse through dates, months, and even years. The default week can be set and saved. For quick reference, there are links to visit the current week and month. Similarly, there are quick links to visit the event schedule for the week and month that are about to come. Forex Factory Calendar - Time Browsing
  • FXStreet — a calendar browsing facility is available. There are also quick buttons to jump to Recent & Next, Today, Tomorrow, Yesterday, This week, This month, Next week, Next month, Previous week, and Previous month events. It is possible to set the date manually, with 2007 being the earliest year available. A bit of a problem is the fact that the event dates lack any indicator of the year they belong to, so it can be confusing if your range includes several years. FXStreet Calendar - Time Browsing
  • — you can show Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, This Week, and Next Week. Alternatively, you can set a date range using a calendar, which lets you get some announcement data from decades ago. In fact, the calendar does not seem to have a limit to what date you can set, allowing you to choose ridiculous dates like past centuries. But in reality, the earliest date the calendar can provide starts in 1970. Calendar - Time Browsing
  • — lets you flip through the weeks back and forward. You can also choose current, previous, or next week as well as current, previous, or next month. A calendar selection is available where you can choose a period of up to 90 days long. Calendar - Time Browsing
  • Myfxbook — has Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, This Week, and Next Week buttons. You can also use the pop-up calendar facility to set a date range, and its start and end fields can also be edited manually. The time range cannot be longer than three months. Myfxbook Calendar - Time Browsing
  • — the time scale allows a quick selection of data pertaining to the previous day, the current day, and the next three days. Additionally, a tab to view the entire list of events during the current and next week is available. Using the input box in the custom search facility, a trader can choose the period of interest for studying the economic data. The pop-up calendar in the custom search facility allows flipping through months but not years. A drawback that we came across while using the custom search facility is that the number of events that get listed is restricted to 500 despite increasing the time period of the search. For example, if we are studying the events in the month of April 2022, only the first 500 events are getting listed. Once we reach the twentieth page of events, we have to input the new dates to study the rest of the data. A tiny green-colored square box within each calendar date in the time scale provides the number of anticipated events for that particular day. Calendar - Time Browsing
  • Trading Economics — calendar browsing facility is not available. However, there is a drop-down menu that provides a quick link to view the event schedule for recent events, such as today, tomorrow, this week, next week, next month, yesterday, previous week, and previous month. There is also a facility to manually enter the starting and ending dates of the event schedule. Trading Economics Calendar - Time Browsing

Week beginning

Four of the 11 economic calendars use Monday as the starting day of the week. They are DailyFX, Econoday,, and Trading Economics. In the case of Forex Factory, you can set the first day of the week according to your choice in the profile manager if you are registered. The rest of the websites that were researched used Sunday as the first day of the week. and are somewhat special in the sense that, while the calendars show Sunday as the first day of a week, a week starts with Monday in the custom dates setting of those calendars.

Automatic updates

The auto-update feature lets you avoid the need to manually refresh a web page to view the latest announcements. The following economic calendars offer automatic on-page updates:

  • DailyFX
  • FXStreet
  • Myfxbook
  • Trading Economics

Other calendars require explicit reloading to see the changes, which is not a big problem itself, but it certainly makes working with announcements tedious.


Nowadays, when lots of traders prefer to use their mobile phones to analyze charts, access news, and even submit orders, it is crucial for a calendar to have a mobile-friendly view. In addition, calendars can offer stand-alone apps that can offer their own features and be even better than web-based calendars. Below we assess how mobile-friendly are the top Forex calendars in our list. has a responsive, mobile-friendly website. The mobile version provides the same information and nearly identical interface features as the desktop version of the calendar. In fact, it looks like they developed the calendar with mobile as their first priority and then expanded it somewhat for a desktop view.

BabyPips Calendar - Mobile View

There is no mobile phone app for the calendar.


Offers a mobile-friendly website that does a great job of providing nearly the same information as the desktop version of the calendar.

DailyFX Calendar - Mobile View

The iOS and Android apps are available for the DailyFX calendar. It has a slightly different design but offers almost the same information as the mobile web browser version, except for the former not showing any details about announcements.

DailyFX Calendar App


Dukascopy's calendar is not mobile-friendly at all. It retains all the main features of the desktop view, but it seems that you cannot even scroll horizontally even though the site does not fit the browser window horizontally.

Dukascopy Calendar - Mobile View

Dukascopy's calendar is available in an app called Swiss Forex (published by Dukascopy). The calendar in the app is more user-friendly, and it includes the same filtering options as the website.

Dukascopy Calendar App - Swiss Forex


It is a relatively mobile-friendly website. Unfortunately, it lacks a weekly view. On the other hand, it has the same filtering options as the desktop version. Additionally, you can easily browse through the days and months of the current year.

Econoday Calendar - Mobile View

Currently, Econoday does not offer a calendar app for mobile devices.

Forex Factory

This calendar could be a great example of a mobile-friendly website. Still, despite having lots of interface features transferred at a top-notch quality level, it only shows the Actual values for all announcements in the event list. You have to click on the specific announcement to view the Previous and Forecast values. And you cannot see the pre-revision value, though you can still tell if the Previous value has been revised.

Forex Factory Calendar - Mobile View

No official Forex Factory calendar app is available for your phones. There previously were unofficial apps with questionable value, but it looks like all of them were removed from the store now.


It offers a mobile version of the website, which is almost on par with the desktop version. You can use the same filtering options as in the desktop web calendar, even allowing you to set custom date ranges. Unfortunately, revisions aren't even shown.

FXStreet Calendar — Mobile View

The app offered by FXStreet features a calendar with a simple layout but, for the most part, suffers from the same issues as the webpage for mobile browsers. It has the impact filter but lacks the event type filter. You cannot switch the dates; you can only choose today, tomorrow, and next week. Time zone settings are either your local or GMT. Same as the mobile web version, the app doesn't show any revisions — only pre-revision values are displayed.

FXStreet Calendar App

The mobile version of the calendar is ridden with ads but is built to be rather convenient. Unfortunately, browsing through the past weeks is not possible. Revisions are marked, and pre-revision values are available in the history tab after clicking on a report. Calendar - Mobile View

The app for mobile devices offers only one improvement over the browser-based calendar — a search feature that lets you find any particular economic indicator and see its release history. However, the app lacks the event category filter. Calendar App calendar flawlessly transfers all the features from the desktop web version to the mobile web version. You can even set date ranges! Everything is displayed in a clear and concise way. The revisions and pre-revision values are shown. Calendar - Mobile View

The mobile app is called Tradays. It performs the basic functions but is far from ideal. Time-browsing is performed by either scrolling the event list to the necessary date or by scrolling the dates list to the required week and tapping the necessary date. Filtering can be done by importance and country but not by currency. Revisions are not shown and not even indicated. To see an unrevised value, you need to choose the event you want and then go to the History tab. Calendar App - Tradays


Myfxbook is very mobile-friendly, having largely the same features as the desktop web version, even allowing you to set custom date ranges in the filtering options and search events by keywords, which can include an event name, currency, country, and impact. The mobile version does not show a specific time for releases, the same as the desktop version. If you wish to learn when exactly the next release will happen, you need to choose the event and look at the Next Release section.

Myfxbook Calendar - Mobile View

The Myfxbook mobile app is available for Android and iOS mobile platforms. It has slightly crippled functionality — you cannot set arbitrary date ranges for time browsing. Also, revised previous values aren't shown. The app has one advantage over the web version though - you can choose in options whether to show the event release time as a countdown (similar to the web version) or as a regular time.

Myfxbook Calendar App is not a mobile-friendly site. To browse through it, you have to endure lots of scrolling and tight tapping. On the bright side, all the desktop features are retained in the mobile version. Calendar - Mobile View offers a mobile app called baha: Stocks, Markets & News. In addition to multiple other things, it offers an economic calendar, which is much easier to use than the mobile web version. Time browsing is rather limited, and there and only two filters are available — impact and country. Revisions are completely ignored. Calendar App - baha: Stocks, Markets & News

Trading Economics

The calendar is relatively mobile-friendly but not convenient to use at all. All interface features are there, including advanced ones, like charts and alerts. However, the calendar does not show any data in the list of events, requiring you to choose an event to learn all the information.

Trading Economics Calendar - Mobile View

The calendar is available via the official Trading Economics app. It is much easier to use compared with the web version of the calendar as it shows all the information necessary in the list of events. On the downside, the app lacks a custom date range selection tool. But it offers a watchlist to track events. Revisions are shown, but unrevised values are unavailable.

Trading Economics Calendar App - Trading Economics Calendar


For the most part, the calendars have been updating actual values in a timely manner. The only notable exception was Dukascopy, as it often delayed the release of reports, sometimes for hours.


Notifications can alert you about a news event with sound or other means, even when you aren't watching the calendar. Here is how different calendars from our top 11 work with notifications:

  • Dukascopy — none.
  • Econoday — none.

Loading speed

For many traders, an economic calendar has value only if it loads quickly. In this regard, the performance of all the ten researched websites is assessed using the service of WebPageTest. The websites were tested using six different geographical locations: US East Coast (Virginia EC2, USA), US West Coast (California EC2, USA), South America (Sao Paolo EC2, Brazil), Europe (London EC2, UK), Asia (Tokyo EC2, Japan), and Oceania (Sydney EC2, Australia). The browser was set to desktop Chrome with the default Desktop Browser Dimensions, a Cable connection, and the median of three first loads has been measured for each calendar from each of the six locations. Then, the average load time was calculated. The results are presented in the table below.

Website/Location US East Coast US West Coast South America Europe Asia Oceania Average 21.62 47.49 47.37 4.51 46.60 5.95 28.92
DailyFX 4.35 4.33 5.01 4.42 5.23 5.41 4.79
Dukascopy 6.31 7.59 9.8 5.58 8.92 13.73 8.65
Econoday 2.31 1.74 2.93 2.52 2.32 2.50 2.39
Forex Factory 4.34 4.36 4.71 3.08 4.73 4.39 4.27
FXStreet 6.35 6.69 7.14 7.49 7.52 8.07 7.21 48.22 72.51 50.48 5.78 41.39 40.74 43.28 2.15 2.88 2.54 1.49 3.36 4.17 2.76
Myfxbook 2.71 2.92 2.92 3.05 2.89 3.27 2.96 7.36 8.58 8.85 6.01 10.40 10.99 8.70
Trading Economics 1.96 2.42 4.02 2.31 2.73 3.22 2.78

There were some interesting changes this year. For starters, all calendars were loading longer than last year. While for most calendars, the difference was not particularly big, and demonstrated particularly atrocious results. remained the worst-performing calendar in 2024 overall, as well as in the vast majority of regions except for Europe. FXStreet was the worst performer in Europe, though its loading time was nowhere as bad as the loading times of and in other regions. was the second longest-loading calendar in 2024. It is important to note that the results demonstrated by and were highly inconsistent between different attempts to measure the loading speed as well as between different runs during the same attempt, sometimes showing a difference of ten times. As for the best-performing calendars, things changed significantly. Trading Economics lost its lead, coming in the first place only in the US East Coast. took the second place, being the fastest-loading calendar in South America and Europe. Econoday became a winner in 2024, showing the fastest loading speeds in three regions - US West Coast, Asia, and Oceania - as well as being the fastest loading calendar overall.

Number of events

A Forex trader who needs to stay informed about all the events related to the currencies he or she trades would be naturally inclined to look for a calendar that offers the maximum number of events. While the economic calendars do not miss out on any major currency, they curtail the number of news events listed in their economic calendar. Since there is no way to add a custom news event to an economic calendar, it is important to select an economic calendar that offers as many relevant news events as possible. We have calculated the number of events provided by the 11 calendars for the four major currencies (EUR, GBP, JPY, and USD). In the calendars that don't support currency filters, a country filter has been applied to include Japan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and all the countries of the eurozone. The calendar month used for assessing the completeness of an economic calendar was April 2024.

  • — 680
  • DailyFX — 906
  • Dukascopy — 451
  • Econoday — 315
  • Forex Factory — 309
  • FXStreet — 663
  • — 966
  • — 758
  • Myfxbook — 1035
  • — 727
  • Trading Economics — 983

Myfxbook is a clear leader in terms of providing the maximum number of economic data items related to the four most traded currencies. Trading Economics,, and DailyFX are also quite heavy on the number of economic reports. On the other hand, Econoday and Forex Factory would be more helpful to traders who are less interested in minor events and variations of the major ones.

Forecast accuracy and similarities

Quite often, a trader will come across differences in the forecast values offered by different calendars. The use of different primary data sources contributes to the difference in forecast values. Are forecasts provided in one calendar consistently better than forecasts offered by other calendars?

To assess the forecast accuracy of economic calendars, we used the ‘US Non-Farm Payrolls’ data, a popular high-impact fundamental indicator, to calculate the standard error of forecasts for the period of 12 months, starting with the report released in June 2023 and ending with the report released in May 2024.

The following table provides the difference between the forecast and the actual values in thousands for the given month and calendar. For example, if the forecast value was 177k and the actual value was 75k, the difference recorded in the table is positive 102k; if the forecast value was 181k and the actual value was 263k, the negative difference -82k is recorded. The final column is the absolute value of the average difference for the sample of 12 observations for the given calendar:

Trading Economics -149 16 13 -17 -166 30 -19 -46 -173 -75 -130 68 73

This year, the accuracy of forecasts improved significantly for all calendars. MQL5 managed to improve its forecasts significantly, and that allowed it to avoid being the least precise calendar with its predictions this year, passing the title of the calendar with the least precise forecasts to Dukascopy. Forex Factory became a winner this year, though most other calendars were not far behind.

The calendars of DailyFX, FXStreet,, Myfxbook, and continued to use the same source for their forecasts. This year, Trading Economics joined them, providing the exact same forecasts. It is interesting to note, though, that forecasts for June 2023, as well as for February, March, April, and May of 2024, provided by differ slightly from forecasts provided by the rest of the aforementioned calendars.


All the top 11 Forex calendars are available in English. However, for the majority of FX traders, English is a foreign language, so it might be preferable for them to access the economic calendar in their native language. The calendars reviewed here approach this issue in different ways:

  • does not offer its calendar in any language other than English.
  • DailyFX offers its service in Japanese. Almost everything in the Japanese version is translated.
  • Dukascopy doesn't offer many translations of its economic calendar despite the fact that the website itself is available in a number of foreign languages. The only translation available is in Japanese, and even then, it is only partial, with names of countries in the filter and the names of events and their descriptions remaining in English.
  • Econoday does not provide any translations of its calendar.
  • Forex Factory offers the website only in English.
  • FXStreet offers its website and the economic calendar in 14 languages apart from English. The languages are Arabic, Chinese (simplified and traditional), French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, and Vietnamese. The translations are very professional and thorough.
  • offers high-quality translations of its website and calendar in the following 23 languages: Arabic, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hindu, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese.
  • calendars in non-English languages are well done. You can use it in Chinese (Simplified), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish.
  • Myfxbook offers its calendar in 21 languages (in addition to English). For French, German, Hindi, Malaysian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Turkish, and Vietnamese, the translations are very good, with only minor interface elements left untranslated. Conversely, for Chinese (both traditional and simple), Czech, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Latvian, Portuguese (Brazilian), Slovak, almost nothing is translated.
  • offers its website and calendar in French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Russian, and Spanish translations. For the German version, everything is translated, while for the other versions, only the interface is translated, whereas the names and descriptions of events remain in English.
  • Trading Economics provides services in 17 languages in addition to English: Arabic, Chinese, Danish, French, German, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Norwegian, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. The event details can be read in the listed languages. The calendar is fully translated in all available languages. Even descriptions are translated.

Trading Economics lost first place among sites with the biggest number of languages as now it lags behind and Myfxbook. Still, it and FXStreet provide a reasonable number of options for traders who want a calendar in languages other than English., Dukascopy, Econoday, and Forex Factory will be of little use to traders with a poor understanding of English.

Extra features

Some calendars offer extra features that deserve to be mentioned. The list compiles the additional features, if any, in each of the calendars being researched:

Forex Factory — displays the major central bank interest rates in a sub-window for quick reference.

Forex Factory - Central Banks

FXStreet — offers a special dashboard for each news event. This dashboard, in addition to the abovementioned amazing historic chart, features three volatility charts that show how a chosen currency pair (you can select from EUR/USD, USD/JPY, GBP/USD, AUD/UDS, and USD/CAD) behaved statistically following the given news announcement. The first chart is the True Range one with 15-minute and 4-hour true ranges (plus average true ranges) plotted for several years of historic releases:

FXStreet - True Range Chart

The second chart is the Volatility Ratio one with 15-minute and 4-hour VRs (plus average VRs) plotted for several years of historic releases:

FXStreet - Volatility Ratio

The third chart is the most interesting one — True Range vs. Deviation. It plots the 15-minute and 4-hour true range against the deviation of the actual value from the forecast. As a result, you can see how the currency pair volatility correlates with larger news surprises. For example, here is the True Range vs. Deviation chart for EUR/USD and ISM services PMI:

FXStreet - True Range vs. Deviation — displays the time remaining for the upcoming news releases. There is also a handy link to the holiday calendar. Also, the central bank rates are available on the right sidebar: Forex Calendar - Central Bank Rates

Myfxbook — in addition to the date and time of each event, the calendar displays the time remaining till each event. This might come in handy to quickly assess the remaining time. The calendar also has tabs that show interest rates and holidays.

Trading Economics — provides a chart-based comparison of economic indicators. For example, you can compare the US non-farm payrolls with the Canadian employment change:

Most calendars use advertising as their main source of revenue. This allows them to provide free data services to all traders but cripples the calendar's usability. Some calendars use advertisements sparsely, while others can be overloaded with ads. Here, we review the situation with advertisements on Forex calendar websites:

  • — has one banner above the calendar and two banners below it. They don't distract from browsing at all.
  • DailyFX — the calendar belongs to the IG broker, so its banner can be seen just below the event list. It is easy to ignore the banner.
  • Dukascopy — the calendar is on the broker's website, so there are no ads at all.
  • Forex Factory — has a sliding side banner and a bottom banner. The former can be somewhat distracting.
  • Econoday — doesn't show any ads.
  • FXStreet — opens with a full-screen ad that you have to close to continue using the site. Features a banner at the top of the calendar, a full-page background banner, a pop-up bottom banner, a sliding sidebar with a table of brokers, a banner at the bottom of the event list, and a banner below the table of brokers. The ads are very distracting.
  • — has a banner above the calendar, multiple normal right-side banners, and a list of brokers below the calendar.
  • — features one top banner. It is easily ignored.
  • Myfxbook — has an interstitial ad, a top banner, and a list of brokers below the calendar. It can also show a pop-up bottom banner but seems to do so only when your browser window is not maximized. If the window is maximized, it is replaced by a full-page background banner.
  • — has no ads on the calendar page.
  • Trading Economics — has no ads to distract you.

Exporting and printing

Printing calendar events allows traders to work on their trading plan away from the keyboard, which can be useful sometimes. Exporting to printer-friendly formats or spreadsheets allows for the further processing of the economic calendar data. Unfortunately, not all calendars allow such manipulations.

  • — none.
  • DailyFX — lets you print out the calendar.
  • Dukascopy — none.
  • Econoday — none.
  • Forex Factory — lets you export the current week as ICS, CSV, JSON, and XML.
  • FXStreet — allows exporting the calendar events in CSV and ICS format. You can first apply filters and the date range, and the export function will respect those settings. The actual indicator data (previous value, forecast, and actual value) is not exported.
  • — has an option to print the calendar.
  • — doesn't allow exporting or printing but allows accessing the calendar events via its MetaTrader 5 platform.
  • Myfxbook — lets you export your filtered view in CSV and XML formats.
  • — none.
