Knowing the dates of important economic events might be very helpful, especially when you need to transfer a large amount of money abroad. Currency exchange rates are often influenced by major economic or political events. When making a large international money transfer or sending large amounts of money abroad, you might want to consider using  these events in your favour. Currency changes might be expected close to a significant economic event. You might want to  plan to make international money transfers when the rate is favourable. Of course, it can work both ways – you can find rates that are not in your favour too. You should always consult an expert and make a smart decision if you are looking for the ‘right time’. 

We hope this high-level economic calendar for 2020 has assisted you with finding the right timing for your international money transfers. Please do come back here for more updates.
