LONDON, June 9 /PRNewswire/ --  Did you know that on June the 10th at midday the Bank of England will announce its rate decision? Or that at 1.30 the next day the US retail sales report is released? How about the fact that the results of the GfK consumer confidence survey will be made public on the 30th June at 00.01? If you've succeeded in committing all these events to memory then well done, but even the most fastidious trader could hardly be blamed for letting the odd economic event slip their mind.
