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 Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Fries
Healthy Baked Sweet Potato Fries are good for you! YES! You can eat french fries! And they taste so good, they'll likely become your go-to french fry. They certainly have in our house!
Did you know that the sweet potato is one of the 10 most healthiest foods? It's true!
Sweet Potatoes are a complex carbohydrate loaded with fiber, beta carotene, vitamins A, B, C, potassium, the list goes on, but I think you get the picture...
This beautiful orange potato is good for you and it tastes great! It's a win-win! When my daughter was teeny tiny she used to eat sweet potatoes like there was no tomorrow! I would cut them into bite sized cubes and boil them until soft. She would snack on them all the time! I never left home without 'em!
At one point, she had apparently been eating too many sweet potatoes and carrots that her toes turned orange! Freaked me out!! I took her to the doctor! I was terrified I had ruined her, and she would have orange toes forever! Thank goodness it was only temporary! Now she is all grown up, beautiful, smart, funny, and not orange at all! So feed this amazing super food to your little ones often, just not too often <wink>.

  • 2 sweet potatoes, sliced into 1/2" thick wedges
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • kosher salt to taste
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • garlic powder to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with foil. Reynolds Wrap non-stick foil works great! If you are using regular foil be sure to spray it well with cooking spray.
  2. Place sweet potato wedges in a bowl and add 1 tablespoon olive oil (more or less as needed to coat the fries), 1-2 teaspoons salt to taste, 1/2 - 1 teaspoon fresh black pepper to taste, and 1-2 teaspoons garlic powder to taste. Because sweet potatoes vary in size, the amount of seasoning you use will vary. Use more or less as needed. The more you make this recipe the easier it will be to 'guess' what is right for you. Toss the potatoes to coat them evenly with oil and seasonings and place them on the prepared baking sheet.
  3. Be sure the sweet potato wedges are in one layer and there is space around each wedge. Leaving space around each potato wedge is important for getting them a little crispy. If they are crowded they will steam and be soggy.
  4. Bake the sweet potato fries for about 15 minutes and then turn each fry over and bake another 10-15 minutes. Watch them carefully so they don't burn. Keep in mind the cook time will vary depending on the size of your fries. If they are thick like steak fries you will need to cook them longer. If they are thin you will want to shorten the cook time.
