Present continuous for future

The present continuous is used (very similar as be going to) for future events arising from a present plan, program, or arrangement. This construction (especially when there is no time adverbial such as in a couple of days) often suggests the near future:

  • She’s going back to Morocco in a couple of days.
  • What are you doing for lunch?
