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!

Keto No Bake Cookies – The BEST Easy Low Carb Cookie Recipe!

Keto No Bake Cookies – The BEST Easy Low Carb Cookie Recipe!

These Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies are my new go-to guilt-free treat! They're super easy to whip up (no cooking required) and you only need 5 simple real food ingredients.

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies
One of the women in our church group recently had a baby, but 2 weeks afterwards you couldn’t tell at all! (And amazingly this was her sixth kiddo!)

I asked her secret, and she filled me in on the Keto diet – raving about how she never feels hungry and still gets to eat all the foods she loves.

With a baby on the way this summer, I was definitely intrigued! Last time it took me quite a while to lose the baby weight (though I did get it all off eventually). However, anything that could help speed up the process is worth a look!

What is the Keto Diet?
In simplest terms, the Keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat eating plan. After a week or so on this type of diet, your body will enter a state known as “ketosis,” where your body burns more fat for energy because it doesn’t have the carbs that it would normally use.

Following a ketogenic diet can also help shed excess water weight, curb cravings (since fat tends to keep you feeling full longer), and lead to substantial weight loss. To see those benefits, you’d need to faithfully follow the plan, as eating carbs can kick you right back out of ketosis.

These Chocolate & Peanut Butter Keto No Bake Cookies were the first recipe on my list to try — they’re rich, creamy, and guilt-free!
Even if you don’t follow a strict ketogenic lifestyle, they’re still a pretty darn healthy snack or dessert! They’re gluten free, lactose free, and contain no added sugar.

How to Make Keto No Bake Cookies
First, watch our 1-minute recipe video to see how we made our famous keto no bake cookies, then keep reading for photo step by step instructions.

No Bake Keto Cookies Recipe:
Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a non-stick silicone baking mat.
TIP: We love these silicone baking mats because they’re non-stick and washable, so you can use them again and again!
In a large mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter, vanilla extract, melted butted, coconut flake and cocoa powder. Mix well by hand (the mixture will be gooey).
TIP: Feel free to add 1-2 teaspoons of Stevia or Swerve if you like your cookies a little sweeter.
Scoop the no bake cookie batter onto your prepared baking sheet. Use the back of the spoon to gently shape each scoop into into a 3″ cookie.
Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set.

How to Store Your Keto No Bake Cookies
I recommend storing your keto no bake cookies in the freezer, because they do melt if left out at room temperature.
Simply place your finished cookies in a large freezer bag or airtight container and keep frozen until you’re ready to enjoy them.
This recipe makes approximately (10) 3″ cookies.
A Few Recipe Notes Based on Reader Questions
These No Bake Keto Cookies have turned out to be quite popular! I thought I’d answer some common reader questions here:
Nutrition information (in the printable recipe at end of post) is based on 1 cookie.
Our nutrition calculations are simply an estimate. They’re based on a batch of 20 cookies that are about 1.5″ in diameter.
If peanut butter doesn’t work for you – sunbutter, almond butter, and cashew butter may be an appropriate substitute.
If coconut is not your favorite – some readers have suggested using shredded almonds or other nuts.
This recipe is keto-friendly, but of course, these are cookies, so they’re intended to be a treat. I don’t recommend eating them at every meal and expect weight loss results, BUT if they keep you from craving other full-sugar and high-carb desserts, then they’re doing the job they’re intended to do. 🙂
