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!


Today I’m excited to share one of my recent favorite dinners – sweet and spicy orange salmon. It’s a healthy dinner idea that is quick and easy. 
Hi everyone! I’m Alyssa, and I’m popping over from My Sequined Life where I share food and drink recipes that are on the easier and customizable side.
There’s nothing worse than coming in the door a little bit hungry after a busy day and having no clue what to prepare for dinner, right? That’s a surefire way to become hangry…and/or reach for the take-out menu.
That’s where this sweet and spicy salmon comes in. It’s on the table in about 45 minutes, including the time it takes for a quick marinade! It’s a healthier main dish recipe that fits in wonderfully with any healthy eating intentions you may or may not have made after ringing in the new year. Plus it’s packed full of flavor! 
The marinade/sauce is made with ingredients that very well may already be in your cabinets and fridge, or you may need to purchase just one or two items. What I love about a few of these ingredients (like sesame oil and sriracha) is that after you buy them once, you’re then ready to go for a ton of recipes that incorporate Asian-inspired flavors. I love the uniqueness they bring to a dish!
The level of spiciness is customizable here, so feel free to increase or decrease the sriracha in line with your preferences. The sauce calls for three tablespoons, but since some is discarded with the marinade it isn’t a super spicy dish. As I’m mixing up the marinade ingredients I take a little taste and add more as I go if I’m feeling like something on the spicier side.
As this sweet and spicy orange salmon was cooking, I made spicy stovetop asparagus as a side dish, which I’ve been pairing with everything lately, but you can serve this salmon with a side salad, on mashed potatoes or rice, etc. This Dill pea and cucumber salad would be especially light and fresh!

Today I’m excited to share one of my recent favorite dinners – sweet and spicy orange salmon. It’s a 
healthy dinner ideathat is quick and easy.
  • Juice from one orange (about 1/4 cup)
  • Zest from one orange
  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tbsp sriracha, more or less to taste
  • Salmon fillet(s), between 1 1/2 – 2 lbs total
  1. Whisk together orange juice, orange zest, soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, and sriracha in a bowl.
  2. Reserve about 1/4 cup of the sauce in a separate bowl for glazing later on.
  3. Add remaining sauce to a shallow dish (or a plastic bag) and place the salmon in it to marinate for about 20 minutes, flipping the salmon over halfway through.
  4. As the salmon is marinating, preheat oven to 400 degrees F. You’ll want a rack to be situated in the middle of the oven, as well as one near the top.
  5. Line a baking sheet with foil and spray it with cooking spray.
  6. Once the salmon has finished marinating, place the salmon on the prepared sheet, skin side down, and bake on the middle rack for about 18 minutes.
  7. After 18 minutes, remove the sheet from the oven and brush the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce over the salmon fillets (see note).
  8. Increase oven temperature to 425 degrees F and place sheet on the upper oven rack.
  9. Broil for about 2 minutes, or until the edges of the salmon begin to crisp and brown.
  10. Serve!
Sometimes I separate out the reserved 1/4 cup of sauce into two bowls – one for brushing on the salmon before it broils and one for drizzling over the finished dish.
The salmon fillets I used were about 1 1/2″ thick. If you have thinner fillets, you can reduce the cooking time accordingly. Typically you’ll want to cook the fish for about 6 minutes per 1/2″.
