How do you determin which is the best setting for any given indicator? I realize there are defaults but sometimes I feel I would like a slightly faster signal and other times I would like a more conservitive signal. Is adjusting the time periods considered prudent or is it best to leave settings at the default?

IE: TSV defaults at 38, and offers no buy signal but at 20 it does. 20 seems like enough information to get a true signal but yet it is defaulted at 38 how does one decide which is prudent?

Thanks Thom

The trainers can't give setting, interpretation or investment advice. I'll move this topic to the Stock and Market Talk forum so other traders will be more likely to see it and comment.

just adjust indicator settings until a visual inspection of historical chart info shows the indicator is giving the buy or sell signals desired.
