    Other than the FOMC interest rate announcements what other economic reports/announcements can have a big effect on the markets action the day that it is reported. Looking for something that will affect the overall general market and not a specific sector.
    What reports do day traders generally look out for or avoid trading around.
    Do you know of a good site that outlines the important reports/announcements.

    NFP, Non Farm Payroll, 1st Friday of every month. At one time it was synonomous with interest rate hike. Not so much anymore, but I would certainly be aware of the estimates and the implications if the estimates are missed by much.
