About the Macroeconomic Calendar

An economic calendar API displays news announcements, scheduled events and other periodic data that can influence trading and investment decisions. Traders and investors depend on the economic calendar for insights and potential trading prospects. They frequently adjust their positions based on upcoming event announcements or the heightened trading activity that typically occurs before a planned announcement. Most of the events mentioned in the API output can be categorized into two types: forecasts of upcoming financial or macroeconomic activities or summaries of past economic or financial occurrences.
