Why trade economic events?

An economic event is a public release of information, such as inflation data, employment figures or a monetary policy decision.

Major announcements can impact the entire market, while some events will have a more specific effect on individual stocks, currencies or sectors. Overall, economic events tend to create short-term volatility that traders can take advantage of.
