Economic calendars are an important part of research in Forex Trading. Since we make (or lose) money based on movement in the currency markets, it is important that we know what economic events or announcements are soon to take place. While minor events will create volatility to power your trades, major market events can create gaps which create great opportunities for profit. This information is usually included in the forex signals you get from your provider, but it is good to have an overview of the market news anyway.
