What Is an Economic Calendar Olymp Trade?
An economic calendar shows the scheduled news events or data releases related to the economy and financial markets. These include GDP, Non-Farm Payroll numbers and interest rate decisions.
Because you know these events cause volatility, which they may not want to be a part of, many traders cancel their pending orders, causing a drop in liquidity right before a market moving event occurs. Because there are fewer orders to absorb market buy or sell orders (or stop loss orders) that are triggered by the event, the price will often “whipsaw” very quickly back and forth before choosing a more sustained direction.
In this class, we will learn how to build a trading matrix to prepare ahead of time to trade the event learning to set market neutral, market positive and market negative.
