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!

CREAMY TOMATO & ROASTED VEG RISOTTO (VEGAN)

CREAMY TOMATO & ROASTED VEG RISOTTO (VEGAN)
A deliciously creamy risotto that is BURSTING with flavour.
Risottos are one of my favourite dinners. When made right, they are rich and creamy, but not too heavy or stodgy. Plus, risotto rice picks up flavours so well, so there is a lot of potential to make a seriously amazing-tasting dish when you’ve got the makings of one in your stock cupboard.
And I have a new favourite risotto recipe: This Tomato & Roasted Mediterranean Vegetable Risotto! Sooooo flavourful and a dish everyone can enjoy, vegans and meat-eaters alike. Plus, risottos are naturally gluten-free too!

INGREDIENTS
FOR THE ROASTED VEGETABLES
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 300 g cherry tomatoes
  • 2 red peppers
  • 1 large courgette zucchini
  • A generous pinch of salt and pepper
FOR THE RISOTTO
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large red onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 225 g risotto rice
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 250 ml passata
  • 250 ml vegetable stock
  • Approx 6 sun-dried tomatoes chopped into small chunks
  • A small bunch of fresh basil torn
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional vegan parmesan or "nooch" to serve
INSTRUCTIONS
TO ROAST THE VEGETABLES
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F and add the olive oil to a roasting tin.
  2. Chop the vegetables into small chunks and spread out in the tin, adding the salt and pepper before giving everything a shake to coat.
  3. Roast for 30 minutes.
TO MAKE THE RISOTTO
  1. Meanwhile, add olive oil to a shallow casserole dish or large frying pan, on a low-medium heat.
  2. Sauté the onion for a few minutes before adding the minced garlic and cooking for another minute.
  3. Stir in the rice with the vinegar and stir for approx 30 seconds, to coat it in the oil.
  4. Pour in the passata and vegetable stock, 1/2 cup at a time, alternating between the two. Allow each amount to be absorbed by the rice before adding the next.
  5. After 20 minutes, add in the sundried tomatoes and the roasted vegetables. Give everything a stir, adding more liquid if needed, and cook for a further 5 minutes until everything is cooked through and the rice is done.
  6. Remove from the heat and stir in the basil, salt and pepper and vegan cheese (if using). Feel free to stir in any extra oil or dairy-free butter at this point for an extra creamy risotto.
  7. Serve right away and enjoy!
