Okay so now I’m elaborating these points respectively.

i)                    Date:

This column contains present date of the day. Because the calendar has all the news but we should just focus on the present date. So we can verify the present date via this column.


ii)                   Time:

This column guides us about news publishing time. It tells us which time the news is coming. As the time is very important in the fundamental trading so we have to carefully check the time and should be ready for trade before the news time.

iii)                 Currency Impact:

In this column, at first, we have the currency name, the impact type, and the type of news. This is a very important thing in the fundamental trading; here we have three types of currency impact during news time, Yellow, Orange, and Red. Most traders just trade when currency impact will go with Red Color as they not considered yellow and orange as fundamental trading news.

Okay, so what means of these three types in fundamental trading language?

The yellow means market will move through some pips, or maybe it will remain dead as it was.


The orange impact means the market will move a bit fast before that. For Example, if it was moving 10 pips in one minute before news time, it will move 13-15 pips when orange news impacts the currency.


The red impact is very important in fundamental trading. Most traders only follow the red impact news. They always ready themselves before the news time and keenly observe the market movement before news time, when the red impact news comes up, the market move like a rocket. For Example, if the market was moving 10-20 pips in a minute, it will move around 80-90 pips while red impact news.  Here I have a suggestion for newcomers please don’t trade on news time if you didn’t have enough knowledge about the fundamental trading.

v)                  Actual

This column shows the value of news actual impact of the currency, it’s usually shows the value after few minutes of news time. If it comes better than forecast, it will mark as green and if it comes worse than forecast it will mark as red by forex factory, it will remain same color if the market doesn’t have any big difference.

vi)                 Forecast

There are many experts in the forex market, they forecast about the news impact on behalf of its history, the economic condition of the related country and many more tools. They forecast about the news impact and we can see it in this column. It may be vary from the actual impact but some time it’s miraculously matches.
