- Not an all-purpose, all-in-one indicator for entry and exit
- Used as a visual aid to better understand price movement. For example. if price is bearish, but the Shadow MA is showing high, positive values, it is a sign that price is not tending to close at its highest point; therefore, there is bearish resistance.
- Can be used in combination with momentum oscillators and trend analysis.
