I understand your points.

Most of the long term TA entrys are triggered when a stock breaks from a long base , at this point yes those dif TA methods have variations to qualify the entry.

FA says that a stock is undervalued at a certain price & should therefore be brought. The loosness IMO is in that the stock may be undervalued at the FA(buy figure) entry but Mr market could base for 2, 3 years (banding sideways in that time) or he may undervalue the shares further before revalueing or overvalueing the stock for your FA exit. That is the main dif IMO
