**Abstract**

We calculate fluctuations and correlations of conserved charges in finite temperature QCD. We

also present the equation up to order $(mu_B/T)^6$.

This allows reliable calculations of thermodynamic

quantities up to $\mu_B/T \approx 2$, which covers most

of the Beam Energy Scan program at RHIC. Our simulations

use staggered quarks with physical quark masses. All of

our results are extrapolated to the continuum limit.
