I usually use the calendar on Forex Factory. If you want to improve on that one, I'd like to see it have a quick and simple summary of events like fed chair speaks.

Their calendar gives the expectation and actual for events like NFP or crude inventories but you have to read the file to see what speeches contain. Having an expectation of hawk vs dovish or similar and then the actual results would help when looking for info quickly.

Also, if you included info similar to the FNG it would also add a quick reference point.
An example would be for each event on the calendar add a column with the most affected pair and the expected move (up/down) based on the projected results and then the expectation after the results are released.

Great Idea

Reuters and Bloomberg have the fastest Economic data releases, but they are not free/cheap, so maybe somehow through partnership negotiations they will accept !?
