Eightcap introduces a new AI-powered economic calendar

Australian-founded global FX and CFD provider Eightcap today announced its latest integration with Acuity to provide an AI-powered economic calendar.

The new feature gives Eightcap clients daily trade ideas based on more than 1000 macroeconomic events, which are categorised in order of impact to the market, allowing traders to manage event-based market volatility more effectively.

Additionally, the AI-powered economic calendar offers valuable insights into why an economic event is affecting the market, how the market is likely to react, the size of the market reaction, and the speed of the impact. Traders also have access to insights into the historic market performance of each macroeconomic event.

The collaboration with Acuity allows Eightcap clients to quickly highlight trading ideas using AI advanced filtering, allowing them to identify trading opportunities across more than 100 countries and over 1000 macroeconomic events. The AI filtering uses colourful elements in order to show high, medium and low-impact events.
