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!

Healthy Piña Colada Oatmeal Cookies Recipe – Soft and delicious oatmeal cookies bursting with Piña Colada Flavors. All healthy ingredients and easy to make!
COOKIES! They are the best, aren’t they? There’s something about the smell of freshly baked cookies making me go crazy.
I love when I feel like my entire home is one big bakery and there’s cinnamon-toasted-something everywhere.
That’s why today I decided to bake me some.
I wanted to make some cookies fit for a hot summer day, to be enjoyed with a cold glass of milk.
And let’s face it, what screams “summer” more than Piña Colada? Whoever thought of putting coconut and pineapple together must have been one evil genius.
The flavors complement each other like chocolate and peanut butter (now that’s another great cookie flavor right there!) and in combination with a soft and cakey oatmeal cookie – heaven!
Healthy Piña Colada Oatmeal Cookies Recipe - Soft and delicious oatmeal cookies bursting with Piña Colada Flavors. All healthy ingredients and easy to make!

  • 1 cup whole grain spelt flour
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground vanilla or seeds from 1/2 a pod
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil melted
  • 3/4 cups maple syrup
  • 1 medium banana mashed
  • 2 medium sized eggs
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple chopped
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened shredded coconut
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together.
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk all the wet ingredients together. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine until a batter forms. Fold in dried pineapple and shredded coconut.
  • Line two baking trays with parchment paper. Using a spoon drop the batter onto the baking trays to form cookies (2 tablespoons each for large cookies or 1 tablespoon each for smaller cookies). Flatten the cookies into a round - they will rise nicely while baking.
  • Bake for 20 minutes (30 minutes if you're making large cookies) or until nicely browned. Cool on a wire rack.
