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!

CopyCat Chick Fil A Nuggets and Sauce

Just like Chick Fil A, only better because you made it! Feed the whole family with this awesome copycat recipe.

For The Chicken Nuggets
  • 1 pound chicken breasts (boneless & skinless) cut into nugget sized chunks
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 cups peanut oil for frying
For The CHICK FIL A Sauce
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 2 teaspoons dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice

Make the Dipping Sauce
  1. Start by making the Chick Fil A honey mustard dipping sauce. Combine mayo, honey, lemon juice, dijon mustard and mustard in a mixing bowl and whisk together until well combined and sauce is smooth. Move to a smaller bowl and refrigerate until ready to use.
For the Chicken Nuggets
  1. In a large glass bowl, add the uncooked chicken nuggets, dill pickle juice and buttermilk. Allow chicken to marinate in this mixture for 30 minutes or longer.
  2. Remove chicken from this mixture and in a new bowl toss with a well beaten egg.
  3. In a gallon size Ziploc bag, combine flour, powdered sugar and salt and pepper.
  4. Add the uncooked chicken into the bag and toss to mix well and completely coat the chicken.
  5. In a large wide frying pan, heat peanut oil to medium high heat. Test the oil to see if it's at the right temperature before beginning by a few drops of water into the frying pan. The oil should sizzle, but not pop. Adjust your heat if necessary.
  6. Working in batches, add the uncooked chicken to the hot oil to cook. With tongs, turn each nugget over to cook well on all sides until the nuggets are golden brown. The cook times will vary depending on the size of chicken pieces.
  7. Once browned remove chicken from oil and place on a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  8. Repeat until all chicken nuggets are cooked.
  9. Let nuggets cool a bit. Enjoy with the dipping sauce!
