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!

Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms

Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms 
Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms is an easy yet impressive side dish recipe that’s totally mouthwatering!
Whelp, Ben and I officially finished the second season of Orange is the New Black this week, or OITNB as the manic binge watching folk (ahem, us,) like to call it. Epic ending, but even better is I can finally get some sleep! Anytime Ben and I pick a new series to watch on Netflix we feel the inexplicable need to watch the entire season in as little days as possible, not to be bothered by important things like, oh I don’t know, yard work, going through the mail in a timely fashion, and hitting the hay before 11pm.

I need a hobby.
Oh wait, I already do. Eating mushrooms. Are you sick of me talking about mushrooms yet?? I promise I’ll give it a rest right after sharing this recipe for Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms, aka the one side dish you will NEVER STOP MAKING EVER! These mushrooms will make your mouth water in a way that only garlic and butter can…well that and salt and vinegar chips. Ben picked me up a bag the other day and omg, drool. Does that man get me or what?
Delicious staple side dishes are tough to come by. Often they take a little bit of fuss that I don’t want to deal with and/or it’s a side salad which, let’s be real, isn’t very exciting.
Side salad: I’m just not that into you. There, I said it.
Anyway pair said side salad with Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms and you’ve got yourself one heck of an epic dinner accompanying duo. Whole mushrooms are scrubbed then pan-roasted in butter melted with fresh garlic until tender and slightly crisp on top.
Like I said – addicting in a way that only garlic-butter flavored foods can be. They’re a category all on their own. You know what I mean.
Start by picking up a 16oz container whole mushrooms – baby bellas, white, whatevah – they all roast up deliciously.
Gently wash away the dirt on the outside of the mushrooms then trim down any unruly stems and pat dry with a kitchen towel.
Add 1/4 cup butter and 4 cloves minced garlic to a small dish then microwave until melted, about 30 seconds. Ben and I both adore garlic so four cloves was just the right amount for us, but if you’re a little sensitive I’d go with two or three.
I’ve also made these mushrooms with Earth Balance vegan butter because I wanted Lincoln to try them (spoiler alert: he refused,) and they were just as delicious. So just know this dish could be vegan if you need it to be!
Now, while we’re doing the mushroom wash and garlic butter dance, pop a large cast iron skillet into the oven then preheat it to 400 degrees. I like the way the hot skillet causes the bottoms of the mushrooms to sizzle when I place them inside. If you don’t have a cast iron skillet you could definitely use a pie pan or baking dish. You won’t need to preheat those first though.
Place the mushrooms into the preheated skillet, cap side down, then drizzle the garlic butter on top, taking care to try and contain the garlic to the top of the mushrooms vs letting it fall down into the skillet or pan which could cause it to burn in the oven.
Season with salt and pepper then roast for 25-30 minutes, basting the mushrooms with the butter in the bottom of the skillet halfway through.
Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms are up!
Easy Garlic Butter Roasted Mushrooms

  • 1/4 cup butter (could use a vegan butter like Earth Balance, or ghee)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 16oz mushrooms (I've used both white and baby bella mushrooms,) washed then patted dry
  • salt and pepper
  1. Place a large cast iron skillet into the oven then preheat oven to 400 degrees. If you don't have a cast iron skillet you can use a pie pan or casserole dish - do not preheat either of those.
  2. Add butter and garlic to a small dish then microwave until melted, 30 seconds. Trim ends off mushrooms with a small knife then place cap side down in skillet or baking dish. Drizzle each cap with garlic butter, taking care to get garlic on the mushroom vs on the skillet or baking dish, then season tops with salt and pepper. Roast for 25-30 minutes, or until tender, basting mushrooms with butter in the bottom of the skillet halfway through.
If you’re a mushroom lover like me then you’ve got to make this recipe ASAP. Both Ben and I agreed it’s one of the bests side dishes with dinner we’ve ever had. Enjoy!
