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!



Easy, creamy avocado mac and cheese with a simple white cheddar avocado pasta sauce.

An easy mac and cheese recipe with creamy avocado pasta sauce and sharp white cheddar!


  • 3/4 lb. pasta (I love cavatappi)
  • 2 large avocados, peeled and pitted
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro, plus extra for garnish (optional)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 Tbsp. lime juice
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 1.5 cups shredded white cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

 This tasty avocado mac and cheese recipe is sure to be a hit! With fresh, creamy avocado sauce and white cheddar cheese on top of al dente pasta.


  • Cook pasta according to recipe or package directions until al dente (I always cook pasta in very salty water – it brings out the flavor of the pasta).
  • Combine all avocado sauce ingredients in a food processor or blender.
  • Pulse to break up the ingredients, then use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl and pulse again until you have a thick, creamy sauce. Set aside.
  • In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium-high heat.
  • Whisk flour into the butter to form a roux and cook for 1 minute.
  • Whisk milk into roux a little at a time until you’ve worked out all the lumps. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until mixture has thickened, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Whisk avocado sauce into milk mixture. Cook for another 2-3 minutes, until sauce has thickened again.
  • Remove sauce from heat. Stir in white cheddar cheese, salt, and pepper. Mix until cheese has melted.
  • Add pasta to sauce and toss until pasta is evenly coated.
  • Top mac and cheese with fresh cilantro (optional) and serve immediately.
This creamy avocado pasta recipe is sure to be a hit! With creamy white cheddar avocado mac and cheese sauce and tons of flavor. Ready in 30 minutes. Vegetarian.


  • If you have an especially large food processor, you may have to scrape down the sides a few times or add an extra bit of lime juice to help the blades bring the mixture together more quickly.
  • Use extra shredded cheddar cheese if you like!
  • Add any protein or veggies you have on hand to make this a heartier meal.
  • Mix up the cheeses if you like – pepper jack, goat cheese, gruyere, and parmesan are all tasty additions to this recipe.
