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!



You won’t miss the beef in these tasty Mongolian soy curls! This dish is a delicious vegan which is the popular dish!
I don’t actually miss the beef, it’s more the sauce that I crave. I love the flavor of sweet, salty, and a little hint of heat.

Tofu was going to be my choice for the “beef” until I found some soy curls when cleaning out the fridge.
Their sauce recipe calls for 2/3 cup of sugar and I felt that was just too much so my Mongolian soy curls, I came up with a recipe only uses 1 TB of maple syrup to keep the sugar low.

I also didn’t want to fry them in a cup of oil so I decided to bake the soy curls They still crisped up but without all the extra calories. Some fat is good but we don’t need too much.
I love this recipe because:
it’s healthier than the restaurant version (less fat and sugar)
you don’t have to go out to a restaurant (or spend money) to have this tasty version
it’s still full of protein
it’s vegan!
Mongolian Soy Curls Recipe
You won’t miss the beef in these tasty Mongolian soy curls! This dish is a delicious vegan which is the popular dish!

  • 2 C soy curls
  • Boiling water (enough to cover soy curls)
  • 1 TB olive oil or melted coconut oil
  • 1 TB cornstarch mixed with 1 TB of warm water
  • 3 TB tamari or soy sauce if not gf
  • 1/3 C veggie broth (more if the sauce gets too thick)
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 Tsp ginger minced
  • 1 TB maple syrup
  • 1/2-1 TB red pepper flakes (depending on how hot you like it)
  1. Soak soy curls in boiling water for 10 minutes (or until fully rehydrated).
  2. Preheat oven or toaster over to 375 degrees.
  3. Drain soy curls and press all the water out of them. I usually rinse them with cold water then wring them out with my hands. You want as much water out of them as possible. 
  4. Cover baking pan with oil so soy curls do not stick to it. 
  5. Add soy curls to baking pan and bake for 15 minutes, turning a few times so that nothing is sticking to the pan.
  6. While soy curls are baking, mix sauce ingredients together, add to sauce pot and heat to a boil. 
  7. Once boiling, turn down heat and cook for a few minutes until sauce thickens just a bit. If sauce gets too thick add a bit more veggie broth. 
  8. Pour over soy curls and enjoy!
