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!

Paleo Fruit Pizza with “Cream Cheese” Frosting

This paleo fruit pizza has a sugar cookie crust with a cashew “cream cheese” icing and all your favorite seasonal fruit on top!  It’s gluten-free, grain free, paleo, and the perfect dessert for summer gatherings.

One of my favorite pre-paleo desserts to make for summer was a fruit pizza.  Refrigerator cookie dough, store bought cream cheese frosting, and all my favorite summer fruit.

“Cream cheese” frosting:
  • 1 1/2 cups cashews soaked 2 hours
  • 1/3 cup coconut cream - this is the thick part of a chilled can of full fat coconut milk
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp fine grain sea salt
  • 6 Tbsp ghee room temperature
  • 6 Tbsp pure maple sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Sliced fruit of choice to top
  1. Make the frosting first. Place all ingredients in a food processor or high powered blender and blend until smooth, or relatively smooth. Chill until ready to top the crust.
  1. Use an electric hand whisk to cream together the ghee and maple sugar until smooth. Add in the vanilla and egg and continue to beat until smooth. Stir in the almond flour, tapioca, baking soda, and salt until a dough forms. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for 20-30 minutes. At this time, preheat your oven to 350° F.
  2. Line a 12” round pizza pan with parchment paper. Press chilled cookie dough evenly over the parchment to form a round crust.
  3. Bake the crust for 10-12 minutes or until set and beginning to turn light brown. Remove and cool completely on wire racks. While the crust cools, slice your fruit to top.
  4. Once crust is room temperature, spread the chilled frosting all over starting in the middle and working your way out, leaving a 1” border on the outside. Top frosting with sliced fruit and either serve right away, or refrigerate util read to serve. Enjoy!
