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!

mashed chickpea salad

It’s one of those recipes that never gets old! The easiest, healthiest and yummiest lunch around. Everything I love is all wrapped up in one bowl of super delish mish-mosh! Crunchy, savory and sweet – all the elements in every bite.

Plus, the leftovers are always more scrumptious the next day, once all the flavors mesh together. This time, I took it up a notch and added a little kale.. because why not?! The kale goes unnoticed and this way, we can get in some extra greens  🙂 I also chopped up an apple to add crunch and a subtle sweetness that helps to balance out the flavors.

With plenty of plant protein from the chickpeas and veggies, lots of fiber and vibrant color, this will soon become your new favorite lunch! You can wrap it up in a tortilla or collard wrap, you can spread it over toast (my fave) you can make a sandwich out of it, or you can eat it plain. This Mashed Chickpea Salad never gets old; your tummy will be full and happy.  Honestly though, I always turn to this salad when I’m sick of my super green leafy salads… that’s hard to admit because I love my greens, but I go through phases with salads. Sometimes I crave them for a week straight and can’t get enough. Other times, I just feel like blah towards them and would rather eat a chocolate bar for lunch.

  • 1 medium carrot, shredded
  • 1 (15 oz) can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) drained and rinsed
  • 2 stalks of celery, chopped small
  • 1/3 of a small apple, chopped small
  • 1/4 cup red onion, chopped small
  • 1/2 cup kale, de-stemmed and torn into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  • 2-3 heaping tablespoons of dijon, more as needed (I used a mix of spicy dijon with stone-ground)
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • fresh juice from 1/2 of a lemon
  • 1.5 tablespoon sunflower seeds
  • sea salt salt and pepper, to taste

  1. In a food processor, pulse carrot until shredded and transfer to a large bowl.
  2. Add chickpeas to food processor and pulse a few times until blended, but still with chunks for texture (You can also mash them in a bowl with a potato masher).
  3. Transfer to a bowl with the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly until well combined.
  4. Taste test and adjust salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. Enjoy!
I doubled the recipe in the pictures for extra leftovers.
You can sub any mustard you like, or even use vegan mayo if you like.
Adjust the lemon juice to your liking (sometimes less is more with lemon juice).
