    Coming up next at 2 PM GMT is the closely watched US Consumer Confidence for September, and the Index soared by almost 3 points in August, driven by strong assessment of current conditions.
    US New Home Sales for August are out at the same time. The Index dropped to a 7-month low in July, although the first half of the year was much better than anticipated.
    And Fed Chair Janet Yellen will be speaking at National Association for Business Economics Annual Meeting in Cleveland at quarter to 5 in the evening. The topic of her closely watched speech is "Inflation, Uncertainty and Monetary Policy" and, moreover, audience questions are expected, so there should be plenty of opportunities for market movements.
    I'm Jessica Walker and this was the Economic Calendar for Tuesday. Wednesday brings the closely watched US Durable Goods Orders, so check back.

    Let's see which news releases could move the currency markets on Monday, the 25th of September. This is the Economic Calendar.
    German General Election will take place on Sunday. This has been dubbed a "boring election" and polls predict a sure victory for Chancellor Angela Merkel, but we've all seen boring elections suddenly turning quite unpredictable.
    Preliminary Japanese September Manufacturing PMI is out at half past midnight. The initial August estimate put the Index at a 3-month high, although it was later revised considerably lower.
    Yen traders may also want to keep a close eye on the next release, as Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda will be speaking at 5:30, appearing at a meeting with business leaders in Osaka.
    German Ifo Business Sentiment for September follows at 8. The Index eased slightly in August, but it had been performing very strongly for the past 3 months and even the August reading was the second-highest on record.
    Coming up next at 9:45 PM GMT is the New Zealand Trade Balance for August. Trade balance has been positive for the past 5 months, which even more remarkable as July balance usually is negative; in fact, this was the 11th July trade surplus since 1960.
    Bank of Japan will release the Minutes of its July meeting at 11:50, and, as usual, they may provide some hints and insights.
    And New Zealand Business Confidence for September is out at midnight. The Index inched lower in August, but the report noted that optimists still outweight pessimists and the Index remains at a healthy level.
    That's all for Monday's Economic Calendar. I'm Celeste Skinner and we'll be back with the next overview of news releases for Tuesday. See you then.

    Hello, traders, let's see which news releases could move the currency markets on Friday, the 22nd of September.
    All the Sterling traders may want to keep an eye on the newsfeed, as Prime Minister Theresa May will be speaking in Florence, outlining her Brexit strategy and trying to win over supporters.
    September PMIs from several Euro Zone countries will be available first thing in the morning, starting with the French data at 7. German indices follow half an hour later, and Euro Zone PMIs are out at 8. The manufacturing PMI surprised on the upside in August, driven by strong gains in both Germany and France, while the services PMI slipped on weaker French data.
    ECB President Mario Draghi will be speaking at Trinity College in Dublin at 8 o'clock. President Draghi has a knack for shaking up the markets with his comments, so it's a good idea to keep a close eye on this appearance.
    Coming up next at 12:30 PM GMT is the Canadian August CPI, which is a high importance release for all the Loonie Dollar traders. The annual inflation returned to growth in July, boosted by higher transportation and housing costs.
    Canadian Retail Sales for July are out at the same time. Sales have been rising for the past 4 months, with general merchandise, clothing and building materials being among the drivers of growth.
    And US Markit Preliminary PMI for September concludes the schedule at 1:45. The manufacturing PMI fell unexpectedly in Auguat, but the services PMI actually grew more than expected.
    This was the Economic Calendar for Friday. I'm Jessica Walker and we'll be back with the next overview of news releases for Monday. Goodbye.
