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!


Crepes are so delicious and these cream cheese lemonade blackberry crepes are super delish too! If you are a lover of lemon, and you are a lover of blackberries, then you are going to love these crepes.
Crepes are pretty simple to make. One of the tricks is to make sure to swirl the crepe batter around in the pan covering the entire bottom with a very thin layer. Cook for 1-2 minutes and then flip over and cook for an additional minute or so. Place each crepe on a plate until all crepes are made and let cool.
To assemble the cream cheese lemonade blackberry crepes, first, take a cooled, thin crepe and spread cream cheese lemonade filling over the entire crepe. Next, spoon blackberry filling on top of the lemonade filling and roll up. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and continue making and rolling until all crepes have been filled with the delicious cream cheese lemonade filling and blackberry filling.
If you have any lemonade and blackberry filling left, either make more crepes or pile the extras over the top of each crepe. Smothering each crepe in these two amazing fillings are totally in the deliciousness category in my book.
Blueberries are also delicious mixed with the cream cheese lemonade filling. This filling is from my cream cheese lemonade pie recipe. If you haven’t tasted this pie yet, you seriously need to sink your teeth into this amazing, no bake, delicious, tart, full of lemony goodness, pie! It’s heaven on a plate!
This easy crepe recipe came from JoCooks. The only thing I did different was add cinnamon and a little less salt to the crepe batter. Check out her awesome blog for more delicious tasting recipes that you are sure to love! :)
