I am currently looking for an API that provides economic calendar data for realizing an automated forex trading strategy. So far I’ve been able to find these two providers:
Both APIs are relatively expensive and I miss an important piece of information in the data provided. What I need for all releases of economic calendar data is not just the total release time (e.g. 9:00 AM) but also the right time (e.g. 9:00:17 AM). The reason is that I want to back down a trading strategy based on these releases, and the tests are representative only if the data is sufficiently accurate.
Benefits of using the Forex Calendar API:
It is completed base on the calendar, which assists several traders in making use of the current with all upcoming financial data. It holds data for all future and past economic events of various countries. In the part of the relationship, then change in the region of economic indicator of the land, which is affected the value of the respective currency. If the trader knows that the releases of the accurate report which is become imminent and it released will trigger volatility and other high. If it is a response to the total announcement, then it relies much on where the positioned by himself.
