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 Homemade Guacamole Recipe

Easy Homemade Guacamole Recipe
How to make the best Guacamole every time. Jump to the Guacamole Recipe or watch our quick recipe video showing you how to make it.
When we’re entertaining we have a few recipes we always go to. Sure we’ll also add something with a twist next to it, but we always include one of our staples. This simple guacamole recipe is one of those staples. It’s easy, it’s fresh and no matter what else we serve with it, it’s always the first to go. Serve with tortilla chips, baked pita chips or if you want to have some fun, cheese quesadilla wedges. We definitely suggest making extra.
For the best guacamole, you will need ripe avocados. You’ll know when an avocado is ripe when it gives just slightly when squeezed. Keep unripe avocados at room temperature until they are ready. For more about how to buy, cut and store avocados see our tutorial. Try not to over mash or puree avocados when making guacamole. You want a chunky avocado dip, not smooth.

INGREDIENTS:
  • 1/4 cup finely minced onion
  • 3 ripe Haas avocados
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (or lemon juice)
  • 1 large Plum or Roma tomato, deseeded and diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves and tender stems, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or more to taste
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons minced jalapeƱo or Serrano pepper, optional
DIRECTIONS
  1. Add diced onion to a small bowl then cover with warm water, set aside. This “de-flames” the onions, making them less intense.
  2. Cut avocados in half, lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out the seed. Scoop out the flesh and add to a bowl.
  3. Add lime juice then use a fork to gently mash until creamy, but still chunky. Stir in the tomato, cilantro, cumin, de-flamed onions, salt and diced peppers (if using). Taste the guacamole and adjust with additional salt, peppers, or lime juice.
  4. Serve immediately or cover with plastic wrap by pushing the plastic wrap down onto the guacamole and refrigerate up to one day.
