    There's actually plenty on the schedule on the first day of May, so let's take a closer look with the Economic Calendar.
    If you trade commodity currencies, it might be a good idea to check out the closely watched Chinese April PMI, which will be released at 1 AM on Sunday. The manufacturing PMI has stood in the green for the past 8 months, and the March reading was the highest in 5 months.

    Swiss Retail Sales for March will be available at 7:15 on Monday morning. Sales finally returned to growth in February, following two months of decline.
    Coming up next at 12:30 PM GMT is the high importance US Personal Income and Spending for March. Income outpaced spending in February, and the trend could continue.
    Canadian April Manufacturing PMI is out at half past 1. The Index has been growing for the past 6 months and now stands at its highest level since late 2013.
    The highly anticipated US ISM Manufacturing PMI for April follows at 2. The Index lost half a point in March from the 2 year high reached the previous month.
    US Construction Spending for April is due at the same time. Spending rebounded in March, fully reversing a point 4% drop a month ago.
    Bank of Japan will publish the Minutes of its March meeting at 11:50. The meeting did maintain the bank's accomodative policy, but the minutes could show some dissent.
    Japanese Services PMI for April will be available at half past midnight. The Index saw a strong growth in March, driven by solid gains in output, new orders and employment.
    The Caixin version of Chinese Manufacturing PMI for April is out at 1:45. The Index slipped in March but, more importantly, it does remain in the positive territory.
    And Reserve Bank of Australia will release its latest Monetary Policy Statement at 4:30, which clearly is a high importance event for Aussie Dollar traders. No interest rate changes are expected, but the statement also includes an update on the economic outlook.

    The schedule may be short on Monday, the 24th of April, but it has plenty of potential for a market shakeup.
    The one thing to watch is the French Presidential Election, which is due on Sunday. This will be the first round of election, which will select two most popular candidates for the second and final round. It will provide some idea just how popular the candidates are; moreover, if certain candidates don't make it to the second round, you could expect either some relief or panic in the markets.
    UK Rightmove House Price Index for April is out at 11:01 Sunday evening. Home prices have been growing for the past 3 months, and the Midlands have emerged as the new growth leader.
    If the French election brings no surprises, there's also the German Ifo Business Climate for April, which comes at 8 AM. The Index grew more than expected in March, reaching its highest level in almost 6 years.
    And Canadian Wholesale Trade for February concludes the schedule at 12:30 PM GMT. Sales surged to a record-high level in January, driven by a strong increase in vehicle trade.

    Wednesday, the 5th of April, brings the Minutes of Fed's March meeting which, in turn, brought an interest rate hike. Let's find out more.
    The final estimate of Euro Zone March Services PMI is up first at 8 AM. The initial estimate suggests the Index has grown by one point, and a faster pace of expansion is recorded across the currency area.
    UK Services PMI follows half an hour later. Now, the British Index slipped in February, reaching a 5 month low; higher input prices were the main drag.
    Coming up next at 12:15 PM GMT is the US ADP Employment Report for March. The February report came in much better than expected, posting the strongest monthly growth in 5 years.
    The closely watched US ISM Non-Manufacturing PMI for March is out at 2. The February Index was another piece of US data that surprised on the upside as it shot up by 1.1 points.
    The Fed will release the high importance Minutes of its March meeting at 6. The meeting did bring the widely anticipated rate hike, and the Minutes will be scrutinised for details such as the importance of the strong US data and the future timing.
    And Japanese Consumer Confidence for March concludes the schedule at 5 AM. The Index eased in February from the 3-year high reached the previous month.

    Coming up first at 8:30 AM is the UK Construction PMI for March. The Index did see some improvement in February, but it remains near the 5-month low reached the previous month.
    Euro Zone Retail Sales for February follow at 9. Sales have been declining for the past 3 months, contrary to expectations of recovery.
    US Trade Balance for February is out at 12:30 PM GMT. The total trade deficit widened in January as the service surplus narrowed by point 3 billion and the goods deficit went up by 4 billion.
    The Canadian counterpart of this release comes at the same time. The Canadian trade surplus widened in January as exports went up and imports decreased.
    European Central Bank President Mario Draghi will be speaking at 1:30. He will be introducing the new 50 euro bank note, but traders may still want to tune in as Draghi's speeches often cause volatility in the markets.
    US Factory Orders for February will be available at 2. Orders have been growing for the past two months, driven by increased demand for machinery.
    Australian Performance of Service Index for March follows at 11:30. The Index slipped in February, moving in the negative territory for the first time in 4 months.
    And Japanese Services PMI for March concludes the schedule at half past midnight. The Index eased in February but it still indicated growth in the services sector.
