We calculate fluctuations and correlations of conserved charges in finite temperature QCD. We also present the equation up to order (μB/T)6. This allows reliable calculations of thermodynamic quantities up to μB/T ≈ 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. This conference contribution is mainly based on the papers [1] and [2].
