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!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins with a cream cheese filling, streusel topping, and a sweet cream cheese glaze. The BEST pumpkin muffin recipe EVER!
I have made a million pumpkin recipes in my life and I am always looking for new ones to try. My friend told me about a local bakery that makes pumpkin muffins with cream cheese in the center. She said I needed to try them because they are her absolute favorite. Instead of going to the bakery, I got baking in my own kitchen. I made Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins with a cinnamon streusel topping and a cream cheese glaze. A huge thanks to my friend for the idea because these muffins are off the charts good!
I am a sucker for pumpkin anything, have you seen my favorite 25 pumpkin recipes? Yeah, I LOVE them all. Well, these pumpkin muffins need to be added to that list because they are a new favorite!
So let’s get down to business. Why do I love these pumpkin muffins OH so much?
They are perfectly spiced.
They are super moist.
They are filled with a cream cheese center.
They are topped with the most amazing cinnamon streusel topping.

yield: 12 MUFFINS 
prep time: 15 MINUTES 
cook time: 23 MINUTES
total time: 35 MINUTES

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 6 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk or milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a muffin pan with paper liners or spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  2. First, make the streusel topping. In a small bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Cut the butter into the mixture using your fingers until mixture is coarse and crumbly. Set aside.
  3. Next, make the cream cheese filling. Using a mixer, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla extract together until smooth, about 2 minutes. Place in the fridge while you make the muffins.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, spices, baking soda, and salt.
  5. In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin, sugars, oil, buttermilk, eggs, and vanilla. Stir until smooth.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the pumpkin mixture, and stir until just combined.
  7. Fill each muffin cup with about 2 tablespoons of batter. Add a heaping spoonful of the cream cheese mixture to each muffin. Top the muffins evenly with the remaining batter, about 3/4 way full. Sprinkle the streusel topping over the tops.
  8. Bake muffins for 23-26 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out with just a few crumbs. Let cool completely.
  9. While the muffins are cooling, make the cream cheese glaze. In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and pinch of salt. Whisk until smooth.
  10. Drizzle the cream cheese glaze over the cooled muffins. Serve.
Note-store the muffins covered on the counter for up to 2 days. You can store them in covered in the fridge too, just let them come to room temperature before eating.
