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!


I am so happy the way this Mexican Chicken Soup has turned out. It is low in carb and not very rich. So you can have a big bowl of this soup without any guilt. The smokey flavours of this Low Carb Soup, makes it even more delicious.

The Chicken is perfectly cooked because of slow cooking in a crock pot. If you are not worried about carbs, then load this soup with crunchy tortilla chips or add some charred corn.
With this soup, I started my fitness routine again ( there is no connection between the two though). Do you find it difficult to get back to your routine post-vacation? Well, I do. It has been a week since I am back and I am finding it hard to get back to my regular routine. I started feeling terrible and low. I got back to my binge eating habits. Everything was a mess and I was desperately trying to set everything right. For some or other reason I was not able to start my workout.

Finally, I am back to my healthy eating. No sugar, Low carb, High Protein and off course workout. I pushed myself to the edge and made it sure no excuse to should stop me from doing the workout. Believe me, I am feeling so good since then. How do you resume your lifestyle once you are back from vacation or a long break? Any pro tips ???

This Mexican Soup is rich and creamy. Boneless chicken breast is cooked slowly along with onion, garlic, herbs, roasted cumin powder and chipotle chilli powder in a crockpot. Because of slow cooking, the chicken breast is really juicy.

It is the spice blend, Fire-roasted tomato and chipotle chilli powder are what gives this soup the real flavour.

To make it rich and creamy, there is half and half, cream cheese and also lots of cheddar cheese. I know it sounds a lot but when it is cold outside and you are snuggling in your couch, I bet you would crave for a loaded soup.

Making soup in a slow cooker is really easy and the outcome is outstanding. You need to spend only 10 minutes of your time and rest will be done in the slow cooker.

While you can dump chicken and rest of the ingredients to the slow cooker and cook it, I would really prefer sauteing the aromatics in a pan first. Frying onion and garlic in oil gives deep flavour.

Another important step while making this recipe is adding dairy products at the end of the cooking. So that dairy is not overcooked with other spices and curdles or give a wired taste.

This soup is Low carb. If you are following Keto, then you can easily adjust the recipe as per your macro.

I am going to add some crunchy tortilla chips on my cheat day.

Make a big batch of it and freeze it for later. Another favourite soup in this season is this Low Carb Cabbage Chicken Taco Soup. Another Mexican soup with mindblowing flavours

Recipe Notes
  • Caramelizing Onion and Garlic is an optional step. You can directly dump everything into the slow cooker. I prefer to do it because It maximizes the flavor.

  • If you prefer the soup more water like, then increase the stock quantity.
