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!

NO-BAKE BREAKFAST COOKIES



These No-Bake Breakfast Cookies Are Easy To Make, Healthy, Packed With Protein And Simply Delicious. They Can Be Whipped Up In Less Than 5 Minutes And Stored For Up To Two Weeks.

These breakfast cookies are an absolute favorite in my house. We make them ALL the time for a quick breakfast or snack, as well as chocolate peanut butter protein balls, no-bake energy balls, overnight oats and mini egg frittatas.


HEALTHY NO-BAKE COOKIES

Whenever I get a little lazy to make breakfast or if I know I’m going to have a hectic week ahead of me, I whip up these guys. These healthy no-bake cookies are gluten-free, refined-sugar free, dairy free and oh so delicious!

I eat 2 or three of them for breakfast (okay, sometimes it’s 4) and I always love snacking on them when I get that mid-afternoon dip. They are packed with protein so they really keep you feeling full and powered up.

The thing I love most about these breakfast cookies (other than the fact that they only take 5 minutes to make) is that you can change them up all the time! Sometimes I add only chocolate chips to them (I love dark chocolate chips). Other times I add some chopped almonds or some pecans. The mix-in options are endless – try adding in pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries, flaxseeds…you name it!





INGREDIENTS FOR BREAKFAST COOKIES

The base ingredients for this breakfast cookie recipe are rolled oats, creamy peanut butter, vanilla, chia seeds and honey. From there, feel free to add in any additional mix-in’s, like chocolate chips or chopped almonds. You can also make swaps if you prefer, like using creamy cashew butter instead of peanut butter or maple syrup instead of honey.

Place peanut butter, honey and vanilla in a bowl and microwave for about 20 seconds. Then give it a good mix.

Roll mixture into 8 balls and place on parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Press balls flat slightly, then place in fridge for at least an hour to set.
Store breakfast cookies in an airtight container in fridge for up to 2 weeks.



HOW MANY CALORIES ARE IN A BREAKFAST COOKIE?

If using the base ingredients for your breakfast cookies (peanut butter, honey, vanilla, chia seeds, oats), each breakfast cookie will have about 189 calories each. The calories will change if you add in any extras, like chocolate chips or almonds. Each serving is packed with protein and will keep you staying full and energized throughout the morning or afternoon!

HOW TO STORE BREAKFAST COOKIES

To store breakfast cookies, simply place in an airtight container or zip top bag and keep in the fridge. The cookies will keep for up to 2 weeks if stored properly in the fridge.
CAN YOU FREEZE BREAKFAST COOKIES?

Yes, you can freeze these healthy breakfast cookies. I sometimes double the batch and stick half in the freezer to have on hand. Simply store in a freezer-friendly container or bag for up to 3 months. Just make sure you let the breakfast cookies set in the fridge first prior to adding to your freezer container. This will ensure they don’t stick together!
