You're right, Carmenn, we do use the present progressive for future arrangements. ;-)

And we also use present continuous with the adverb "always" when we talk about an annoying situation:
She is always making noise at night.

Indeed we can. And we can also use it for things in progress but not necessarily happening at the moment:
What are you reading at the moment?
How are things going at work?
