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!

Muffalata Oven Baked Sandwiches
It doesn’t get much easier or delicious than these Muffalata Oven Baked Sandwiches! Layers of ham, salami, mortadella, provolone, mozzarella and green olive salad. Baked in the oven until they reach hot, melty perfection!
I have a love affair with New Orleans. Specifically New Orleans food.
I dream it. Crave it. At times I am consumed by my NEED.
Gumbo, New Orleans Barbeque Shrimp, Étouffée, Beignets, Chicory Coffee and Muffalata Sandwiches!
New Orleans is famous for Muffalata Sandwiches. Created at the Central Grocery in the French Quarter. It is a necessary stop if you ever visit New Orleans!
Of course, you can find Muffalata Sandwiches at many restaurants in the French Quarter. I had The Best Muffalata at a tiny speck of a café along the Riverwalk.
I would grab a Muffalata, a bag of Zapp’s and an ice cold Abita. Sit on the patio to enjoy my grub while gazing at the mighty Mississippi River.Perfection. Pure and Simple.
So now you see why I have to make my favorite New Orleans meals at home. I used to visit NOLA every year. But, I haven’t been back in over 5 years!
Withdrawals, People. Withdrawals!
Until I make it back to the French Quarter I will be making these Muffalata Oven Baked Sandwiches.
The traditional Muffalata is made on focaccia bread. I prefer them soft and buttery. So I used King’s Hawaiian Sweet Rolls.
Loaded with meat and cheese. Slathered with olive oil and Italian spices. Then baked until hot and melty.
Make it and fall in love with New Orleans! Then you’ll be dreaming of the French Quarter, like me.
You’ve been warned.
