What is an investment strategy?

An investment strategy is a set of rules used by an investor in their investment operations. Every investor creates their own tactics, by choosing a method of analysis (fundamental or technical), duration of orders (short-, mid-, or long-term), and additional tools (signals and automated strategies).

A unique style can be developed only by practicing, learning the behavior of attractive assets, and adopting the experience of professional investors.
