It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

Philly Cheesesteak Pasta

Philly Cheesesteak Pasta
This easy dinner recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is a cheesy comfort food dish that will become a new family favorite!
If you thought my Philly Cheesesteak Baked Egg Rolls were good, you are in for a treat today. So, things have been a little bit crazy around here. Time is flying by with a newborn baby and I can’t believe it’s August already! I have to admit that I haven’t been cooking a lot lately. Mr. Wishes has been saving our dinners with grilling out – I guess that’s a perk to having a new baby in the summer! This Philly Cheesesteak Pasta is one those meals I dream of having again soon.
My poor baby Eliza got diagnosed with a dairy allergy a couple of weeks ago so I won’t be enjoying this Philly cheesesteak pasta anytime soon, but I can guarantee it will be one of the first meals I make when she outgrows the allergy, along with my Sloppy Joe Macaroni and Cheese! A meal loaded with pasta and cheese is the greatest that it gets.
A cheesesteak, also known as a Philadelphia cheesesteak, Philly cheesesteak, cheesesteak sandwich, cheese steak, or steak and cheese, is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of beefsteak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. I have made Philly Cheesesteak Dip in the past When I saw it in pasta form I had to make it! I first saw this meal on my friend Lisa’s Instagram page (Wine and Glue blog). I immediately took a screenshot of it so that I remembered to make it. I rarely see a photo of food and immediately think to myself that I NEED to make it ASAP but it definitely happened. It took me about two days to go to the store to get the ingredients to make it. It did not disappoint, let me tell you! I mean, just looking at the photos makes it obvious that is one is going to be a keeper for years to come. I also have my eye on this Philly Cheese Steak Hasselback Chicken from my friend Amy. Delicious!
If you’re into the cheesy pasta dishes that only use ONE pot, this One Pot Chili Mac and Cheese is one that has made it to the top of my list. Also, if you haven’t had my Homemade Hamburger Helper, it’s time to change that.
