Economic events are one the main factors behind the Forex market major price moves and fluctuations if you want to know the reason behind a major move on the market you must know what happened and which events were released during that period.
cTrader doesn’t have an on chart economic calendar and lack of this vital feature were causing a major disappointment among its users, and if you check the cTrader user suggestions it’s one of the most voted suggestions, the only place you can find an on chart economic calendar is TradingView, even popular platforms like MT4/5 doesn’t have this feature.
There were some indicators for displaying upcoming events on the chart but those indicators have only displayed the events in text format and the number of events was limited at most to a week.
Our team was working for a long time on an all in one solution that gives access retail FX traders to perform all kinds of analysis on economic events, and we developed MacroForex, which is a desktop application that has all the features you can think of for fundamental data analysis, and due to our great interest to cTrader platform we used some of our developed libraries for MacroForex to develop a feature-rich economic calendar for cTrader.
The chart calendar indicator is not like any other on chart economic calendars you have seen in the past for cTrader/MT4/MT5, it comes with a database of economic indicators from 2007 to now, and it displays all these events on your chart based on your provided filter in the form of vertical lines like TradingView.
