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!


This no bake banana banoffee pie is also flourless & eggless dessert. A combination of sweet, sticky & soft topped with freshly whipped cream will definitely be a hit at your party!


  • 1 can Dulce de Leche or homemade caramel
  • 2 Bananas
  • 8.8 oz Digestive Biscuits (250g)
  • 1/2 cup Melted butter (100g)
  • 10 fl oz Whipping/Double Cream (270ml)
  • 2 tablespoons Icing Sugar (optional)
  • Chocolate to garnish (optional)


  1. Melt the butter. Crush the biscuits into crumbs using a food processor. Pour over the melted butter and mix until well combined.
  2. Line the bottom and sides of a round cake tin with baking paper (if you don’t know how to line cake tins with baking paper, watch our video: How to Prepare Cake Tins/Cake Pans) and throw 2/3 of the biscuit mix in. Spread the mix evenly around. Now cut a circle out of the baking paper (roughly the size of your cake tin) and place it over the biscuit crumbs. Using both hands press down, hard. Keep pressing until you create an even base. Now discard the baking paper. Add biscuit crumbs along the cake tin sides and using a spoon, create a “wall”.
  3. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile: Pour 1/2 of the Dulce de Leche into a sauce pan. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. This will help the sauce thicken (You can also use homemade caramel sauce, if you prefer). Let it cool for a while.
  5. Spread it over the chilled biscuit base.
  6. Use the other half of Dulce de Leche to spread over the thick layer (If you prefer to have thick center only, boil the whole can content). Cover with banana slices.
  7. Pour chilled cream into a chilled bowl (this will help you whip the cream), add icing sugar and whip until stiff. Spread the cream over the banana layer and place in the fridge for 30-60 minutes.
  8. Finish it off with some chocolate shavings.

Note: If you don’t have dulce de leche, use caramel instead. Some shops also sell ready-made caramel but if you have a recipe for homemade one, feel free to use it!
