Everyone has their very own trading style, whether you are a focused scalper or a risky momentum trader. It all boils down to your personality and your risk appetite.
One of the questions you always get asked as an investor/trader is that "do you trade with Fundamental or Technical analysis?". The two schools of trading actually defines the type of trader you are. A long term investor would usually lean towards the Fundamental analysis method while a trader would prefer a much more technical approach.
