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!


Full-flavored delicious Oven Cooked Barbecue Brisket marinated overnight, and then cooked on low heat yielding a smokey tender flavor!

Hey guys! I’m going to be very behind in my recipe sharing because for four days we’ve been visiting family in Nevada. In fact, I didn’t cook during our getaway at all! Instead I’ve been the recipient of good home cooked meals and boy did I enjoy some tasty grub!
We spent Father’s Day weekend at my in-laws house and every time we visit, my Father-in-law Bill makes the most magnificent meals including this mouthwatering Oven Cooked Barbecue Brisket!
The aroma was amazing while cooking and I knew this would be another tasty meal, so I asked if I could share it with all of you!
That means that I made everyone wait before serving up a plate of food so I could capture the meal in a couple of pictures. Brave, I know! The family got a peek of what Alan goes through as I swatted everyone away from picking pieces off the meat to taste!

Even though Bill cooks and preps the meals, my mother-in-law is the menu planner! On Karen’s kitchen counter she has a recipe box packed to the brim with years worth of recipes.
Some are cut from the newspaper, but most are handwritten on those good old fashioned recipe cards! Delicious food that has been tried and tested for many years!
This BBQ brisket recipe has been a favorite since 1981! Don’t you love hand written recipes? I adore the special note that explains where the recipe came from.

It is important that this brisket bakes on low heat in the oven after an overnight seasoning with liquid smoke. The slow process breaks down the tough meat yielding very tender slices of beef.
Give this thick and delicious low carb bbq sauce a try!

Leftovers will also freeze well if you are cooking for just a couple of people.

Full-flavored delicious Oven Cooked Barbecue Brisket marinated overnight, and then cooked on low heat yielding a smokey tender flavor!

  • 5-6 pounds brisket

  1. In a small bowl whisk together celery salt, garlic powder and onion salt. Season both sides of the brisket. Place meat in a foil lined baking pan that is enough to fully enclose the meat. Pour Liquid Smoke and Worcester Sauce over the meat and as it drips to the side lift meat up so the liquid also seasons under the meat.
  2. Crimp the foil tightly over the meat. Return to the refrigerator and marinate overnight.
  3. Bring the meat to room temperature (30 minutes) and bake at 275 degrees for 5 hours. Remove foil and pour about 1 cup of barbecue sauce over the meat. Bake for an additional 60 minutes with the foil open.
  4. Cool and slice into thin pieces.
