Hi all - interesting that you bring this up actually and I'd love the Community input. 

We are looking at bringing the Economic Calendar into the dealing platform and improving things such as alerts and automatic notifications. Now is your chance to have your say and help build out functions within the dealing platform. 

  • I have my personal opinions, but what exactly would YOU like to see in the calendar? 
  • What functions do you use on other websites?
  • What are your 'blue sky thinking' wish list items to have on the calendar?

Thanks @JamesIG,  I especially like using the added graphs such as on the calendar linked above and on the Forex Factory site and also a + tab as on FF and the Dailyfx calendar that explains what the data is based on, how it's collected and how often it's published etc.

Also, traditionally the IG calendar has been very stocks biased (at least that was my impression from years ago, may have improved since).

Thanks casey - when it comes to this part...

are you referring to this?

I'm a bit fan of visual imagery and quite like the historical data like this.

Or maybe things like suggested markets it's likely to effect? Increased Alert functionality and granularity? New delivery methods? There are likely a number of options. 

  • I like the added description and educational stuff.
  • I want to get non-data driven points into the calendar as well... things like minutes, rather than just data points like NFP.

Yes, in the calendar linked in the OP  the hover over to pop up graph is great and clicking on the graph icon opens a new page packed with added info.

I agree the non-data stuff is often just as important, some sites simply link to the official minutes once released which is better than nothing.

A print or download option would be handy as well.

ooo I like those charts on the econ calendar link you posted @Caseynotes and its very useful. For me I think the description as well and I think it helps as there are so many different data points and its hard to remember what they all are. I like the way that dailyfx do it with the drop down rather than it taking you to a different webpage, however it doesn't have that for all events.

I also think a count down timer would also be good rather than just having the time of the event, and when you click on the event it comes up with the core market related to that, or at least a few options.

Filters are very important. Also presumably individual profile settings ie current day only, only FX related versus indices etc. Detail display with a pop-out frame but better than Forexfactory (where it obscures the rest of the calendar items and stops you from just putting to one side for later reading).

@JamesIGLate to the party but on FX Street eco calendar, not only can you see historical releases but also standard deviations from expectations which is very helpful when filtering out the noise of a release.

If by 'blue sky' you mean functionality that is already implemented and included on other platforms ...

Even Forex Factory is better than what IG has at the moment, which takes forever to get updated with the actual results.

    • Thetanuts Finance is shaking things up in DeFi with their focus on structured products and, of course, options trading. Thetanuts isn't the only player on the DeFi options field. Badger DAO, for instance, is another project offering options for Bitcoin alongside their other yield-generating tools. Meanwhile, Opyn uses something called an Automated Market Maker (AMM) to provide liquidity, similar to how Thetanuts plans to leverage Uniswap v3 pools.   They've got some interesting features, just landed on Bitget, and seem to be building a community. But options trading can be complex, and DeFi is still the wild west of finance.  What do you think? Worth a shot, or best to stick to simpler DeFi tools? Let's hear your thoughts in the comments!
    • You know that saying we always hear, "not your keys, not your assets"? Well, HashPack is taking that to heart and giving us the power to truly own our crypto. We've all been there, trusting some custodial wallet or centralized exchange to hold our digital cash, only for them to mess it up or straight-up exit scam with our funds. HashPack is putting an end to that BS by making sure we're the only ones in control of our private keys and assets. No more relying on third parties to hold our crypto hostage. With HashPack, your accounts are fully decentralized and secure, just like crypto was always meant to be. And if that's not enough to make you feel safe, they've even integrated with top-tier hardware wallets like Ledger, D'CENT, and Citadel for an extra layer of protection. Talk about having your back! But HashPack isn't just about keeping our crypto on lockdown. These guys are on a mission to revolutionize the entire web3 experience. Let's be real, navigating this decentralized world can be a total pain in the **** sometimes, with all sorts of friction and barriers standing in the way. Well, HashPack is tackling those issues head-on with their user-centric products and services. And get this – HashPack has already achieved some seriously impressive feats in the space. They've built HashConnect, a secure dApp connection library, introduced trustless peer-to-peer trades, and have been leading the charge in ecosystem innovation. These guys are the real deal, no cap. But wait, it gets even better! HashPack's utility token, $PACK, is now available for trading on Bitget exchange. And not only that, but Bitget is running an ongoing campaign with a $3,000 $PACK prize pool up for grabs! Can you believe that? This is our chance to not only support a game-changing project like HashPack but also potentially win big in the process. So, what do you say, fellas? Are you ready to take back control of your crypto keys and assets? Are you hyped about the prospect of a seamless, user-friendly web3 experience? If so, then HashPack is the project you need to be paying attention to. Trust me, this is just the beginning of their journey – and I, for one, can't wait to see what they'll accomplish next!
    • You know, after being around the crypto block a few times, I finally feel like someone is getting scaling right with this Taiko project. They seem to have cracked the code on addressing the major headaches we've all faced trying to scale Ethereum in a truly decentralized, transparent, and efficient manner. With Taiko, the whole show is open-source, permissionless, and driven by the community itself – no shadowy centralizers pulling the strings behind the curtain. And get this – they're actually writing all that juicy block data directly onto the Ethereum mainnet! That means everything is out in the open, decentralized, and there for anyone to verify the latest chain state. No more black box nonsense. Transparency is clearly a huge priority here too. Taiko insists that every single bit of executable data has to be publicly available and in sequence. So we regular folks can generate proofs for blocks using only what's out there for all to see. No more having to blindly trust some convoluted system, you know? But Taiko isn't just focused on keeping things open and transparent – they're also hellbent on making the whole block creation and proposing process as streamlined and efficient as can be. Their approach levels that playing field so anyone has a fair shot at adding blocks based on legit factors like fees and MEV rewards. No more relying on a handful of big dogs to keep the wheels turning. And you've got to admire their innovative spirit – they're even splitting up the block submission process into two parts to cut down on those pesky bottlenecks we've seen cripple other systems. Genius, if you ask me! Now, I know some of the jaded old-timers in our crowd might roll their eyes and say "Here we go again, another overblown project overpromising the moon." But hear me out – Taiko has managed to turn heads and rustle up over $22 million from major investment heavyweights like Sequoia China, OKX Ventures, KuCoin Ventures, and they've even gotten a nod from ol' Vitalik himself! That's no mean feat, let me tell you. I truly believe Taiko is onto something special here. They're taking on the huge challenges of decentralization, transparency, and efficiency head-on, but doing it in a way that doesn't abandon Ethereum's core values and principles. If they can pull this off, it could be the real deal for finally making scaling a practical reality. And you know what's got me extra excited? Taiko's very own $TKO token is now available for pre-trade over on Bitget exchange! I might just have to throw a little support behind this promising project and see where it goes. Who's with me, huh? Let's dive into the future of decentralized Ethereum scaling together!
