I'm slightly partial to the format of the Econoday calendar, but the forexfactory calendar is more comprehensive to me.

Thank you for your answer stoicbuddha
I was more referring from a programmatic perspective if I want to disable my trading strategy during times of important news. I need to know which calendar is best to work towards.

I have seen many sites that use the forexfactory data, so I believe you can find a way to use that more than any other one that may be available. In my programming experience I have used python to pull different kinds of market data using parsing. I am not sure what language you are using, but I'm sure you could do the same.

I think the forexfactory, investing or macrospike calendar will do just fine.

ForexFactory news calendar.

Someone named Hanover actually created Plot News mt4 indicator. But it comes with an independent news downloader that can scrape the entire calendar data and put it into csv format. Runs on any windows computer (or perhaps in a wine bottle), and can be run independent of the indicator.


I also heard about econoday.

That is what I was using until I saw trading economics yesterday. It offers way more events that forexfactory didn't mention.
