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!


This easy dinner is so delicious that you won’t believe that you can make it in just minutes using only one dish!  The Mediterranean Chicken Bake recipe has all the flavors you love like tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, feta, lemon and greek seasoning baked right on top of wholesome chicken breast.  This is equally perfect for a busy weeknight or entertaining friends!

There are so many things we have loved about living in Utah.  We love our friendly neighborhood, walking out the door to views that make you feel like you actually snuck into a resort and have been hiding away waiting for them to tell you that you have to pay much more to access all of the beauty, and new experiences, like gardening.
So now it was and I spent far more than I might have actually spent buying produce planting the garden of a lifetime!  I asked my friends what to plant and they said zucchini!  You can’t kill zucchini.  Well I did.  3 times.  But I did manage to keep a few tomato plants alive and well enough to give me a tub full of tomatoes this past August.

All the fresh produce makes me excited to cook things that show them off so I combined them with some of my favorites, fresh spinach, tangy artichokes, lemon juice, capers, greek seasoning and topped it all with delicious mozzarella and feta cheeses to make what came out of the oven as one of my new favorite dinners!
  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Tbsp Cavendar's Greek Seasoning
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Can Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1 Cup Tomatoes, chopped (about 2 medium tomatoes)
  • 1 Cup Fresh Spinach, chopped
  • 2 oz Jarred Capers, drained (about 1/2 4 oz jar)
  • Juice of One Lemon
  • 1/2 cup Mozzarella Cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup Feta Cheese, crumbled

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.
  2. Lay the chicken side by side in the bottom of a large baking dish, then sprinkle the greek seasoning evenly over the top of each piece of chicken.
  3. Layer on the chopped artichoke hearts, tomatoes, and spinach and then sprinkle the capers, lemon juice and olive oil over it.
  4. Top the dish with the mozzarella and feta cheeses and place on the middle rack of the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and the cheese is browned on top.
  5. Serve hot over rice, pasta, mashed potatoes, or sautéed spinach.
  6. Enjoy!
