There are many terms/slang young investors use while explaining their trading strategies. However, Contessota explained seven major terms people use these days.

First, he explained "HODL." The term is actually the mis-spelling of HOLD. It means "Hold On for Dear Life." It came into existence in a bitcoin forum in 2013 where a user by the name Kyuubi posted “I AM HODLING," which was in fact a typo. However, the Bitcoin community fell in love with the term "HODL" and it became slang.
