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!


Easy-to-make spicy fish tacos with pan-fried white fish, slaw, and chipotle mayo. A healthier alternative to fried fish tacos ready in just 15 minutes! 
A few years ago, there was a Mexican restaurant in Miami that had the BEST estilo baja tacos!
Beer-battered deep fried fish, Mexican slaw, and chipotle aioli.

Of course, not the healthiest taco but OMG SO GOOD. Literally was my favorite lunch spot. Until they closed. (hello darkness, my old friend)
So bummed. But hey, that just means I had to learn to make them at home in a WAY healthier way. Because as you know, I HATE frying at home.
If you’ve been a reader for a while (thank you!), I’m sure you’ve read about my hatred for frying here and pretty much everywhere on the blog.
I digress.
These spicy fish tacos are BOMB. If I do say so myself. They are tender, flavorful, juicy and the creamy, spicy chipotle mayo just makes them extra DELISH!
I mean, who doesn’t love a kick in their tacos?!
You can totally adjust the spice levels in the recipe. If you want more chili powder, go for it! Maybe just add in 1 teaspoon at a time. Just to be safe. ;)
If you want more chipotle mayo, by all means, help yourself!
I used Sir Kensington’s Chipotle Mayo for this recipe but you can use any brand you’d like, or even make your own! (There’s a simple recipe in the notes section below.)
Best part of this recipe? Uh, everything. Duh. No wait, there’s more! It all comes together in just 15 minutes!
What are you waiting for?!

I hope you make these and LOVE them!

  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 fish fillets (any white fish like cod, mahi mahi, halibut)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 12 corn tortillas , warm
  • 2 tablespoons chipotle mayo (store-bought or simple recipe in notes)
  • Fresh lime juice
  • Tomato , chopped
  • Red cabbage , thinly sliced
  • Cilantro , roughly chopped
  • Lime wedges for garnish
  1. Combine the cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Lay the fish fillets on a clean work surface and sprinkle the spice mix evenly over each filet, rubbing it on all sides.
  2. In a non-stick skillet set over medium-high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of oil. Add 2 of the fish fillets and cook, undisturbed, about 4 minutes. Flip the fillets and cook for another 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil to the pan and swirl to coat. Repeat the cooking process with the remaining 2 filets. Set aside.
  3. Make chipotle mayo using the recipe in notes. If using store-bought chipotle mayo, mix two tablespoons of the chipotle mayo with 1 tablespoon of lime juice to slightly thin it out for drizzling over tacos.
  4. Using a fork, shred the fish fillets. Divide into 12 corn tortillas, top with red cabbage, tomato, cilantro, and chipotle mayo. Serve and enjoy!
Easy Homemade Chipotle Mayo recipe: 1/2 cup mayo or Greek yogurt, 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, 1 tablespoon lime juice. Mix until well combined.
