Instant gratification over long term investment? What’s your preference?

There is a stark difference between an investor who invests through a dedicated period and one who invests and redeems almost immediately. The two patterns will yield or deprive an investor of his benefits accordingly. Find out the difference between a long term investor and short term investor and identify which one is better to follow to get the maximum benefits:-

Difference between long term and short term Investments

An investor’s approach is also characterized by the duration of his investments. If the investor follows a dedicated pattern of investment without redeeming, he is in for a long term investment. This type of individual invests with the intention of holding on for a longer period, without redeeming benefits. He understands that companies and stocks require time, patience and a dedicated pattern of investment, can reach his investments to full potential and growth. Patience and stability are imperative towards becoming a good investor. It can be explained with an example of a person who patiently follows a treatment and waits to get completely benefited from it instead of switching to another halfway.

Playing swift and sure

The second type of investor invests in periodic gaps and redeems in the same way. The investments and redemption are seemingly recurrent. He opts for short term trading goals, without waiting for his investments to take full structure. It’s not necessary he will earn profits in a short period. Many investments may drop in the short term yet grow steadily over the long term but a constant process of redeeming does not allow for its growth. He may not have clarity or understanding of his investment’s full potential and isn’t patient enough to wait. He is not clear about his goals and isn’t focused or goal oriented. He merely wants instant gratification. He misses the opportunity to see his investments reach its ultimate growth. This type of investor could be described with an example of a person who discontinues a treatment and begins another, even before the treatment shows signs of improvement on him.

Do you focus on short term or long term benefits?
