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!

LEMON FETA LINGUINE WITH GARLIC ASPARAGUS

LEMON FETA LINGUINE WITH GARLIC ASPARAGUS
I used a whole lemon (zest and juice), salty, tangy feta cheese, olive oil, and freshly cracked black pepper to create a quick sauce. When tossed together with the warm linguine and a little pasta water, the ingredients cling to every pasta strand, making it wonderfully creamy without the need for cream.
Asparagus is one of my favourite springtime ingredients to use. It can be prepared in so many ways: eat it raw, roast, blanch, steam, pan fry it, etc! It has a distinctive flavour that is hard to describe; a more bolder green bean? Let me know what you think in the comments!
In this recipe, the asparagus is quickly (it takes only a few minutes) pan-fried with garlic, which creates tasty toasted garlic bits, before being mixed into the lemony pasta. A delightful combination that would make a great weeknight dinner for two. 

I hope you enjoy this recipe!
LEMON FETA LINGUINE WITH GARLIC ASPARAGUS RECIPE
INGREDIENTS
  • 4 oz. uncooked linguine pasta
For the sauce:
  • 1 lemon, juice and zest* (see first Note below)
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Cracked black pepper
For the asparagus:
  • 6 oz. (12 spears) asparagus, woody ends removed and cut into 1½ inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Boil the linguine pasta in salted water according to package directions until one minute prior to al dente. Drain and reserve ½ cup of pasta water. Set aside.
  2. For the sauce. While the pasta is cooking, in a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, and olive oil together until well combined. Then add in the feta and black pepper, whisking well until the sauce combines to become creamy and mostly uniform in texture.** Set aside.
  3. For the asparagus. Using a large skillet at medium-high heat, add the olive oil and garlic, swirling the pan for 5 seconds (slightly toasting the garlic). Add in the asparagus, salt, and pepper, stirring frequently until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and place the asparagus in another bowl.
  4. Using the same skillet, reduce the heat to low, then add the pasta and sauce. Using tongs, toss to evenly coat the pasta with the sauce, letting the feta cheese completely melt. Spoon in a tablespoon of pasta water at a time to get to your desired saucy consistency.
  5. Add in the asparagus and give the pasta a final toss. Top with additional feta cheese if you would like. Taste for additional salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
NOTES
*About 1 tbsp lemon zest and ¼ cup lemon juice. This will make it a really lemony pasta dish; reduce the amount of zest and juice if you prefer a more mild lemon flavour.
**It’s fine if there are still visible pieces of feta cheese; they will melt when mixed with the pasta.
