I think you have just described why longer term trades or investing is less considered to be gambling.

Only considered as such by those who like to sell it.

There's a lot of selling going on for the returns of the next 10 years.

Putting money in anybody else's hands is just as much a gamble, it's just that they don't let on what they don't know, so it doesn't feel like it.

We can only make best-effort informed guesses on any timeframe.

Cheers
