There are a lot of readers out there that are purposefully avoiding the digital revolution. I was one of these people for a very long time. My argument was that it doesn’t feel right to read a book on a screen and holding a warm paperback is much more personal. This is just a mindset, though, and definitely not a cold hard fact, and mindsets can often be easily overcome. For example, consider the fact that a good book is not how it is packaged, its cover art, or even how it feels in your hands. It is the content and the experience that it gives you. Does Pride and Prejudice change if you read it in Jane Austen’s original pen or if you read a modern printing of it? Of course not; the story is still the same regardless of how you read it.
The same is true of any type of book; the medium might change a little, but the content is still the same whether you read it in a paperback, an ereader, or on a scroll of papyrus. Ebooks, then, can be just as useful as a traditional book if you give them a chance.
For Forex trading, an ebook can actually be even more helpful than a regular book. Ebooks are quick to download–sometimes they can be accessed in less than a minute. They are easy to navigate–a properly formatted book will have hyperlinks that can get you to where you need to be with just a click of a button. And an ebook is right where you need to be–on your computer. You don’t need to go to a bookstore to get it, nor do you need to wait for a few days for it to ship to your door if you order it online. It’s on your computer and you can get it without walking downstairs and outside to your mailbox.
The experience might take a little bit of time to get used to, but once you spend a few minutes familiarizing yourself with them, you will find that they are much more efficient. This is important in the fast paced world of trading. Oftentimes, a trading decision needs to be made very quickly. Waiting just a few minutes too long can cost you an opportunity to enter a position, and if you’re not careful, it can cost you a lot of money–either in lost profits or in real losses. Both are detrimental to your success. This is especially true in the binary options market, where 30 and 60 second trades are becoming popular and need to be timed down to the split second in order for you to be successful and profitable over the long run.
Are ebooks different? Sure. This is not a bad thing, though. They are revolutionary, empowering readers access to a whole world of books that they never would have seen before. This is a blessing, especially when it comes to trading. There are hundreds of successful trading ideas out there, and only a select few have ever been talked about in literature. Just because it hasn’t been published before doesn’t mean that an idea is not good. But, now that publishing and disseminating information is so much easier, those “underground” ideas can now be found by you much more easily. And if it increases your profit making ability, then how can this be a bad thing?
