COPENHAGEN, Denmark, Jan. 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, has launched a new financial calendar covering major global macro-economic, corporate and geopolitical events.

Saxo Bank, the online trading and investment specialist, has launched a new financial calendar covering major global macro-economic, corporate and geopolitical events. The calendar is available to all Saxo Bank group websites, but has a home on TradingFloor.com where there will be real-time updates of major event data.

TradingFloor.com is a market information and social portal managed by Saxo Bank. Members of TradingFloor.com, which is free to join, not only receive real-time data updates, but also have the ability to save several filters of events based on type (economic vs. corporate), geography and, within corporates, by sector. Other Saxo Bank group sites receive the same data but with a slight delay.

Saxo Bank's new Financial Calendar is one of the broadest available to traders around the world. Macroeconomic events from over 28 countries are covered, as are forthcoming corporate events for the constituents of more than 23 of the world's benchmark indices. Where possible, the information available includes estimates, forecasts and actual figures plus event descriptions and historic data.

"Our new Financial Calendar lives up to Saxo Bank's accomplishment of being one of the world's best online multi-asset trading venues," says Hugh Taggart, Head of Content at Saxo Bank. "There are many online calendars, but few are instantaneously updated and have the same breadth of information valuable to traders and investors who are increasingly active across asset classes. Of course, the calendar is another reason to become a TradingFloor.com member and is in line with Saxo Bank's strategy to make the site the best online financial market community."
