Long term holder and swing trader. Normally buying dips at support to lessen the gamble. Do not do much day trading unless I have played the name before. Like to play options as well only on market pullbacks.
Due diligence important also instincts. Don't blindly follow anyone, especially "experts". I read and use chart and volume study, trends, weighing risk tolerance. Mistakes can be great teachers. Disclaimer: For entertainment only.
