Long-Term KST

What parameters to use for Long-Term KST?

    I don't use KST, but from the support article:

    Short-term Daily = KST(10,15,20,30,10,10,10,15,9)
    Medium-term Weekly = KST(10,13,15,20,10,13,15,20,9)
    Long-term Monthly = KST(9,12,18,24,6,6,6,9,9)

    As noted in Pring's articles, KST can be used on a short-term, medium-term or long-term timeframe. Instead of just shifting between daily, weekly and monthly charts, Pring suggested changing the settings to suit each timeframe. KST is even smoother when using the weekly and monthly settings. This means chartists should use signal line crossovers to detect directional changes in price. The lag for centerline crossovers is often too great.
