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!

Vegan Lentil Salisbury Steak Recipe

To give this Salisbury steak the perfect texture as well, I used vital wheat gluten to make it “meaty” and bread crumbs to mimic an actual Salisbury steak. It takes about 5 minutes to put these together. Considering I suppose that your lentils are already cooked. Although, lentils cook much faster than most dried beans and legumes. However, if you are short on time for cooking lentils, Trader Joe’s has fully cooked lentils in their produce section!


Now on to another very important part of this dish, the mushroom gravy. It is optional of course, but I definitely recommend it. Not only is is delicious, it really makes this whole dish come together to fake out any meat eater. Also, it is so quick and easy, and fool proof, I don’t know why you would skip it!


It is really the perfect fall and winter comfort food. However, even though it looks heavy, it is not, and would be a great meal all year. Vegan lentil Salisbury steak is a very real thing, and it is a very important turning point in our lives.

Vegan Lentil Salisbury Steak Recipe 
Lentils mimic Salisbury steak so beautifully in my vegan take on this classic dish. Smothered in mushroom gravy, it is so delicious, super easy and filled with protein!



Ingredients
Lentil Salisbury Steak
  • 2 C. Cooked Lentils
  • 1 C. Vital wheat gluten
  • 1 C. Bread crumbs, vegan
  • 1/2 C. Vegetable broth
  • 1/4 C. Soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. Liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp. Salt
  • 1/4 tsp. Black pepper
  • 1 Tsp. Olive oil
Mushroom Gravy
  • 2 tsp. Olive oil
  • 8 oz. Mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 Cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. Vegan butter
  • 3 Tbsp. All purpose flour
  • 2 C. Vegetable broth
  • 1/2 tsp. Sage, dried
  • 1/2 tsp. Thyme
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Make the Salisbury steak first. In a medium sized mixing bowl, add the cooked lentils. Using either a potato masher or fork. Mash the lentils until they are almost all mashed, leaving a bit of texture. 
  2. Now add all the remaining Salisbury steak ingredients to the bowl except the olive oil, that is for cooking them. Start to stir to mix the wet and dry together, then using your hands, continue to mix until fully combined. Then knead together the mixture, knead for a few minutes until it forms a nice dough ball that isn't sticky any more. (The longer you knead them, the firmer they will be)
  3. Now taking large balls of dough, roll then flatten to look like steak. Repeat until you have formed all the dough into "steaks". 
  4. Heat the olive in a cast iron skillet or non stick pan on medium high. Now add the steak to the pan, as many as you can fit. You can do it in batches. Cook the lentil steaks on each side for 2-3 minutes until brown and cooked through. 
  5. Remove the steaks from the pan, and set aside while you make the gravy. 
  6. Now make the gravy, heat the olive oil in the same pan on medium high, add the mushrooms and garlic. Saute for a few minutes sprinkle with a bit of salt and pepper. Saute until soft and a bit brown. Remove the mushrooms from the pan and set aside. 
  7. Reduce heat to low. Now add the vegan butter and flour. Whisk together and cook for 1-2 minutes to make a roux. It should be a bit thick and paste like. 
  8. Now add the veggie broth, whisk to combine. Simmer until it has thickened 2-4 minutes. Now add the mushrooms back to the pan, and the spices. Stir. Taste and adjust seasonings. 
  9. Now either add the steaks back to the pan and cook with the gravy for a minute, then serve. Or put the steaks on a serving dish, and cover with gravy! Serve with veggies and carbs! 
Recipe Notes
  • I used green lentils, but any lentils will do. 
  • Make sure the "steaks" aren't too thick, or they won't firm up as much in the center.
