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!

CHILI & HONEY ROASTED SWEET POTATOES WITH LIME JUICE

For me, sweet potatoes have only existed in two forms: as a “healthier” side for fries at restaurants, and pan-fried in butter and brown sugar as an indulgent holiday side dish.


When it comes to eating sweet potato as a pre-run snack, frying it or buttering it up makes zero sense. That would be what we call counterproductive.

In an effort to make something both nutritious and delicious, I decided to bring a tad of natural sweetness together with the warmth of chili powder, the smokiness of paprika, and the tartness of fresh lime.

Ingredients
  • 1 sweet potato cut half lengthwise
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 TBSP liquid honey
  • 1/2 tsp of chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp sweet or smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Harissa or cayenne optional
  • Kosher salt + cracked black pepper
  • 1 lime halved
  • Fresh chopped parsley optional
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Brush each sweet potato halve with olive oil, skin included.
  3. Season the entire sweet potato with kosher salt + cracked black pepper.
  4. Score the top halves (interior flesh) with a knife.
  5. Season each top halve with chili powder, paprika and harissa or cayenne, if using.
  6. Bake for 20 mins at 400 degrees F.
  7. Remove from oven and smear the top halves with honey.
  8. Return to oven and bake for another 10 minutes.
  9. Once the sweet potatoes are tender, remove from oven.
  10. Squeeze fresh lime juice over both halves upon serving, and add parsley.
