Here's another one.

Economic Calender/Forexlive

I like this one because it shows the data at a glance and it is easy to use the calender to check past results.

Yes, you can write an indicator which gets DailyFX CSV file, for example, then parse the downloaded file, and draw vertical lines.
The first step will be something like:
 
Code
                            
System.Net.WebClient Client = new WebClient();
Stream strm Client.OpenRead("http://www.dailyfx.com/calendar/Dailyfx_Global_Economic_Calendar.csv?currentWeek=/events-calendar/2009/0906/&direction=none&collector=allInFolderDateDesc&view=week&timezone=GMT&currencyFilter=|&importanceFilter=|");
    
StreamReader sr = new StreamReader(strm);
    
string line;
    do
    {
        
line sr.ReadLine();
        
//parse line and draw lines...
    
...

Hi,

I've uploaded a handy calendar tool that I developed and use daily, I thought since the preceding posts had mentioned the use of similar websites, some might find an automated way to retrieve and store this data in excel helpful.

The excel worksheet uses macros to query the "forexpros.com/economic-calendar" website and retrieve the specified "Weekly" economic news events and populate the "Web Query" worksheet.

On the "Web Query" worksheet you place your appropriate time zone offset (i.e. -5 = EST, -8 = PST) in the "G1" cell and the query date in the "H1" cell. You then click on the 'Update Calendar' button and it will retrieve and format the data (highlighting those events not yet reported). It works only on a "WEEKLY" time frame based on Monday being the first day of the week (as set by forexpros.com) so if you place any date other then Monday in cell "H1" it will be updated with the appropriate date for Monday of that week, with Sunday defaulting to Monday as well (my setting).

You also have the ability to automatically store the current data by clicking on the 'Archive Current Web Query' button on the on the "Archive" worksheet. I think that you can go back over a year to build your news reports archival (I've gone back to Dec of 2008 without any problem).

I know that there are many enhancements that could be done and as such the code is available for anyone to improve upon. If you do, please update this thread so that we can all benefit.

Best Regards,
Bryan
