The long term investment is those vehicles that you tend to hold for more than one year, in fact, for long term you invest for several years. On the other hand, short term investments are for one year or less than one year. 

A short term investment is an investment you can sell or convert to cash. example of short term investments are money market funds, certificates of deposit or short term bonds, etc. But it is easier & safer to plan for long term investments. 

One of the ways for long term investments is investing in mutual funds, online equity trading, online market trading, etc. If you are starting your investment than I would suggest you invest in long terms investments plan to get more benefits.
