FFCalendar Pro is an advanced version of the FFCalendar free economic news calendar you can find here: https://www.mql5.com/ru/market/product/23647.
Like the free version, FFCalendar Pro receives news from the ForexFactory website and displays their importance, release time and numerical values on the info panel that you can easily move along the chart and minimize by your mouse.
Additionally, FFCalendar Pro shows the news release time by vertical lines. The lines' color and width depend on the importance of the news and are set in the settings. Control zones can be created before and after the news lines. The zones are gray by default. Their width is set in the settings. An alert can be triggered when the price enters the control zone. You are able to define the tracking depth.
Besides, you can sort out news by symbols, importance and impact on the market.
It is possible to disable the news lines leaving only panels on the chart.
