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!


Everything now comes “fully loaded” which of course, is just a way to say packed slam full of flavors. I’ve made fully loaded baked potatoes, fully loaded potato soup, fully loaded TWICE baked potatoes, and the list goes on… fully loaded egg salad seemed like a swell idea as well, yeah I say “swell” ( a lot)
I picked all the flavors that I love in potato salad, and egg salad and then added bacon… bacon is the key. It takes this salad over the top and has been hubbyman approved!
Summer is trying to end, the days are less humid and my fall fruit trees are starting to hang lower, ( pears, lotsa pears) but I can’t let go just yet of those cold summer salads… and really, egg salad is a comfort food too… its win win really.
  • 10 hard boiled eggs ( chopped, using all of the whites but only half the yolks)
  • 12 ounces bacon cooked ( crumbled and divided and second half set aside)
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup diced green onions
  • 15 to 20 green olives ( quartered)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh dill chopped
  • 1 large stalk of celery ( with the leaves) diced
  • 1/2 cup dill relish ( drained)
  • 1 heaping tsp. complete seasoning ( see pictures)
  • 1 cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp yellow mustard
Cook your eggs as you normally do, here is a link for the method I use:

Chop and add to a large bowl. Add your prepped ingredients to the eggs and fold together well.
Add the mayo, mustard and seasoning and fold once more to combine. Chill at least one hour, but 2 to 3 hours are better. Serve on your favorite bread or bun and top with the extra bacon that you had set aside. I also garnish with a bit of fresh chopped parsley.
