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!

Crazy good Scalloped Potatoes

Crazy good Scalloped Potatoes
Hey everybody… I hope your day is going well! 
Today, I’m going to share with you a scalloped potato recipe that will knock your socks off! Now, I will tell you, I grew up on boxed, Betty Crocker Scalloped Potatoes. Don’t know why, just did. 
This recipe is cheesy, creamy, potatoey… You’re gonna LOVE it!

  • 4 – 5 lbs Yukon gold potatoes
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Onion Onion
  • 1 Tbs Tastefully Simple’s Garlic Garlic
  • 3 Tbs flour
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups of whole milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp Tastefully Simple’s Rustic Herb
  • 1 1/2 cups sharp cheddar
  • 1/2 cup parmesan
Ok… Let’s get this party started. Peel your potatoes and slide them about 1/8 inch. What I mean is, slice them thin. 
Outside of the cheeses, put your butter and flour in a saucepan. Cook for two minutes or so. You do that to cook out the flour taste. Then you will want to add all the other ingredients (again, except for the cheeses). Cook till it thickens wisking all the while.
Grease up a baking dish.
Put half of the potatoes on the dish…
Pour half of the cream sauce over the top.
Add 1 cup of the cheddar and the 1/2 cup of parmesan.
Add the rest of the potatoes…
The rest of the sauce…
The rest of the cheese…
bake in a preheated 400° oven for 30 minutes covered with foil then remove the foil and cook for another 25 – 30 minutes or until it looks like this…
Ridic, right? Well, it was. Ridiculously good. 
Before you pull it out and serve it up, try the potatoes. Make sure they are done. If not, let them go another 5 – 10 minutes. You will LOVE it when it’s done.
