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!

Since I was a kid, I have loved bananas. My great-grandmother would send me home with a bundle after each visit. So it was no surprise that I fell in love Banana Bread! I remember waking up in the morning and smelling it baking in the oven. Then my patience was tested having to wait for it to cool down enough to have a slice.
Now that I’m in my 30’s, it was time to ask my mom to share her Unbelievably Most Banana Bread recipe with me and with my readers. All I can say is – DAMN!! It’s so good!

  • Once you’ve mixed all the ingredients together, let the mixture sit for an hour before adding into the pan for baking. This is the secret to this recipe and trust me – it is worth it!
  • If you don’t have a loaf pan, you can use a bundt pan. Decrease the cooking time to 50-60 minutes.
  • If you don’t have ripe bananas, place them (with peels on) in a 240 degree oven for 15 minutes.
  • If you have ripe bananas, but won’t be baking for a few days, peel and place them in the freezer until your ready.
  • You can make the banana bread ahead of time and place the loaf into a ziplock bag to freeze. When your ready, leave out to thaw.

Unbelievably Moist Banana Bread
This Banana Bread is such an easy and delicious breakfast or dessert! It is so moist that this recipe from my mom's cookbook will be the only recipe you will EVER use!
Course Breakfast, Dessert
Cuisine Breakfast, Dessert
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 1.5 hours

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup soft margarine or butter, (two 1/2 cup sticks of butter)
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 6 tbsp buttermilk, (reg milk will work too)
  • 2 tsps baking soda
  • 1-1/2 cups ripe bananas, about 4-5 small
  • 1 cup nuts, chopped (optional) 

  1. Mix all ingredients together. Let mixture sit for 1 hour in the mixing bowl in room temperature. (Note: Due to banana size, the mixture may not all fit into one loaf pan; do not overflow your pan. Use two loaf pans for the extra batter)
  2. Pour into greased loaf pan(s). Bake 60-65* minutes at 350 degrees. If using a bundt pan, bake for 50-60* minutes at 300 degrees. Ten minutes before final cooking time, check doneness with toothpick. When toothpick comes out clean from middle of the loaf, it is done or when center of loaf is close to 195-200 degrees F. (Note: It's okay to let the crust get very dark if cooked for longer, it is supposed to be and won't hinder the taste).
  3. Let stand until almost cool. Loosen bread from sides with sharp knife and set aside. Enjoy!
Oven times may vary. If liquid is seen in the center of the loaf, continue cooking until center is firm.
It is okay to cook longer until center. Edges may turn very dark - that's okay. It will taste the same!
