Hi, I’d like to open this thread about the usage and utility of the time shift parameter (which is present in many indicators, for instance those related to averaging methods). If I got it right, this parameter basically introduces additional lag between the indicator and the price movement. Since many indicators are created to minimize this lag, why is this parameter so extended? What can it be used for?
