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!

HEALTHY MUSHROOM RICE RECIPE

One for mushroom lovers! Brown the mushrooms well so the base of the pot turns brown, then deglaze it with broth so all that flavour ends up in the rice as well as staining it a lovely earthy brown colour. Also see Baked Mushroom Rice!


There are a couple of things I think I do differently to most Mushroom Rice recipes. Nothing schmancy, this is just the way I do it:
  1. Stir through some browned mushrooms at the end – So brown them, then remove them, and add some of them back in at the end. This is because the mushrooms that are cooked with the rice lose their caramelisation and we all know what a fan I am of the golden bits. Always the best flavour!
  2. Rice is stained brown from the mushrooms – If you cook the mushrooms on high heat and brown them nicely, the base of the pot will basically be entirely brown. And when the broth is added, it deglazes the pot so all that brown stuff* mixes into the broth and all that flavour ends up in the rice. You’ll see it in the video (below the recipe, where it always is!) 
Healthy Mushroom Rice Recipe
One for mushroom lovers! Brown the mushrooms well so the base of the pot turns brown, then deglaze it with broth so all that flavour ends up in the rice as well as staining it a lovely earthy brown colour. Also see Baked Mushroom Rice!


Ingredients
  • 2 - 3 tbsp olive oil , separated
  • 30 g / 2 tbsp butter
  • 750 g / 1.5 lb mushrooms , sliced 3 - 5 mm / 1/8 - 1/5" thick (Note 1)
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 small onion , finely diced
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain rice, uncooked (Note 2)
  • 2 1/4 cups / 565 ml vegetable stock / broth (or chicken) (Note 3)
  • 1 1/2 - 2 cups sliced green onion / scallions
  • Optional: More butter to stir through
Instructions
  1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a large pot over high heat. Add half the mushrooms, and cook for 5 minutes until golden. Season with salt and pepper then remove and set aside (we put these in at the end, mushrooms cooked in rice don't stay as golden).
  2. If the pot is dry, another 1/2 - 1 tbsp oil, and add butter. When melted, add onions and garlic.
  3. Cook for 30 seconds, then add remaining mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes or until mushrooms are lightly browned (they won't caramelise as well as the first batch) and the base of the pot is brown.
  4. Add rice and a splash of broth. Mix so the brown stuff on the bottom of the pot mixes into the liquid. (Video below helpful here)
  5. Once the base of the pot is clean, add remaining liquid. Place lid on, bring to a simmer then turn down to medium low.
  6. Cook for 15 minutes or until there is no residual liquid (tilt pot to check).
  7. Remove from stove, remove lid, QUICKLY toss in reserved mushrooms and scallions, put lid back on. Leave for 10 minutes (do not skip this step!).
  8. Fluff rice using a fork or wooden spoon. OPTIONAL: Stir through more butter and Serve warm!
