The award-winning forex and CFD broker has teamed up with Acuity to provide clients with a cutting-edge economic calendar. Powered by an AI big data engine, the powerful tool categorizes macroeconomic events based on their market impact, allowing Eightcap clients to make informed trading decisions.
A Step Up From Traditional Economic Calendars
The AI-enabled calendar stands out from traditional economic calendars in terms of the quality and presentation of the insights it provides. It shows why a particular event is impacting the market, how the market may react, the size of the reaction, plus how quickly the market will react.
The AI filtering allows traders to find opportunities in 1000+ macroeconomic events spanning 100+ countries, including the US, UK, Germany, China and Australia. The calendar also uses colour coding to display high, medium and low-impact events.
The economic calendar is available to all Eightcap account holders and can be opened through the client portal. The calendar will also operate as an EA tab on the MT4 and MT5 research terminals, offering access to news streams and sentiment data, among other features.
“Stay Ahead Of The Markets”
CEO of Eightcap, Alex Howard, commented:
“By incorporating Acuity’s cutting-edge AI technology into our platform, we are able to offer our clients a powerful new tool that will help them stay ahead of the markets.” Howard added: “We are committed to providing an extensive range of tools and educational resources that will enhance our clients’ trading experience and allow them to trade smarter.”

“We are excited to be working with Eightcap, a leading online broker in the industry.” Lane added: “Our partnership will allow us to reach a wider audience and provide more traders with access to our powerful AI-based tools.”
