Investment horizon

We support two time frames for two categories of users

All the diversity of the users is divided into two groups based on the assumed investment horizon:

  • day-traders with the very short-term horizon

  • long-term investors with the mid- to long-term horizon

Several metrics require historical data with a specific discretisation (intervals). OHLC (open, high, low, close) data is used for their calculation in accordance with the following mapping:
