Investors are typically searching far and wide for any little advantage they can get in the stock market. Short-term traders using technical analysis may be looking to score quick profits by capitalizing on the fluctuations of stock prices. There are many different technical indicators that traders can choose to study. Some traders may find an indicator that works great by itself. Others may use a combination of multiple indicators to help spot trends and patterns. Many active traders will keep a close eye on a particular stock when it is nearing a new high or new low that hasn’t been touched in some time.

Long-term growth (LTG) is an investing strategy where a stock will (hopefully) grow in value for a relatively long period of time.  Long-term growth should be considered to be a relative term, due to different styles and goals of investors, but the endgame is the same. 

A “buy-and-hold” investor will consider long-term growth as a longer time period then a day trader will. The buy-and-hold strategy looks ahead farther into the future, giving short-term price swings less consideration as long as the fundamentals stay the same.  A trader is looking more closely at a weekly, or shorter, time frame and is more interested in immediate price fluctuations.
