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!

The best peach dessert

The best peach dessert
When peaches are in season, you’ll have to make this! Everyone will want seconds. I love to stop at our local produce stand and pick up a bunch of peaches every chance I get. They’re just so good. This simple fresh peach dessert is a family favorite.
  • 25 golden Oreo cookies - crushed
  • 25 vanilla wafer cookies - crushed
  • 1 stick of butter - melted
  • 1 8 oz. package of cream cheese - softened
  • 1 cup cool whip
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate from a can
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 cups of peaches peeled and sliced
  1. TOP LAYER: Peel and slice all the peaches. To avoid too much liquid in the top layer of this dessert (the peach layer), place the peeled sliced peaches into a colander inside a larger bowl, to allow any excess liquid to drip out. Chill the peeled sliced peaches in the fridge until ready to assemble.
  2. In a medium sized sauce pan, bring to a boil the water, orange juice concentrate, sugar, cornstarch, vanilla and almond extract. Let this sauce thicken and cool.
  3. In a large bowl, toss the cooled sauce with the 6 cups of sliced peaches, allowing excess liquid to drip out.
  4. BOTTOM LAYER: Mix the melted butter with all of the crushed cookies, and press into a 9x13in. pan.
  5. MIDDLE LAYER: With a hand held mixer, mix the cream cheese with the powdered sugar and cool whip. Spread the cream cheese layer over the cookie crust.
  6. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and chill for 3 hours or overnight.
  7. Add the peaches layer on top. Serve chilled.
Recipe Notes
Optional: You can chill the top layer separate from the two bottom layers. Just add the peach layer right before serving, to help keep the cookie crust from getting too soft from any excess liquid.
