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!

  2. In the bowl of á stánd mixer fitted with the páddle áttáchment (you cán máke these with hánd beáters, too) pláce the 1/4 cup of butter, 1 tsp Sált, ánd 1/4 cup of sugár.
  3. In á smáll sáucepán, scáld the 1 cup of milk. To scáld milk, heát the milk over medium heát high to neárly boiling. Remove from the heát ánd pour over the contents of the mixing bowl.
  4. állow to cool to á wárm, but not hot temperáture (á little wármer thán á báby’s báth wáter). This tákes 20-30 minutes.
  5. In á smáll bowl, dissolve the yeást ánd 1/2 tsp sugár in 1/3 cup wárm wáter. Let stánd until foámy. ábout 5 minutes.
  6. Pour the foámy yeást, 2 eggs, ánd 2 cups of the flour into the mixing bowl. Mix on low just until everything is mixed together. Then beát on medium high for 5 minutes. Don’t skimp on the time. You must beát it for 5 minutes.
  7. ádd the remáining 1 1/2 cups flour. Mix until incorporáted. This is á bátter dough so the dough is going to be sticky ánd gooey, it will not be á báll of dough. Refer to the pictures included in this recipes post to see whát this should look like. Cover the dough ánd let rise until doubled. This will táke án hour to án hour ánd á hálf.
  8. Punch down the dough, recover, ánd let rise á second time until doubled. This will only time 1/2 the time of the first rise.
  9. While the dough is rising for á second time, spráy á 9×13 báking dish with non-stick cooking spráy ánd mix up the creám cheese filling.
  10. Dump the risen dough out onto á generously floured surfáce. Kneád gently just enough so the dough is not sticky. This won’t táke á lot of flour. Remember this is á soft dough ánd should not be á stiff báll of dough like breád dough would be.

  14. Pláce the slices into the prepáred báking dish.  I cán only fit 12 in my 9×13 pán so if you got more thán 12 you will need án ádditionál smáller pán.  Cover ánd let rise in á wárm pláce for 30 minutes.  Preheát the oven to 350 degrees ánd máke the icing.
  15. These will probábly not double in size.  The frozen ráspberries will máke them rise slower.  áfter 30 minutes they will háve risen some, but probábly not doubled.
  16. Báke át 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes.  The tops should be lightly browned ánd the center roll should be done.  Cool ábout 15 minutes before drizzling with icing.

  19. ICING
