I would describe myself as a daytrader with a mix of trend following and contrarian investing strategy.
I cannot image longtime investing or swing trading strategies because if I am wrong, the error may eventually show up after days or even weeks of waiting for the right movement.
This is why I am trading on a daily basis with 1-10 trades per day.
I define a trade as a setup I consider and carry out. In many cases, I do not buy or sell the maximum trade size immediately but rather piece by piece. Consequently, my trading history shows several individual trades summing up to the complete trade.
