I just started investing and so far, the few books I've read mainly focused on long term investing (buffett). Knowing a company inside/out etc etc. Seems like the mentality of this forum isn't like that. Everyone's talking about technical analysis, day trading with some of these terms I never even heard of. So I'm just wondering what the mentality of this forum is. Just cuz if it's the latter, then ET might not be the right place for me. I'm looking for long term strategies.
