 All of the indicators express a logical condition that can either be fulfilled or not fulfilled. When creating a strategy, you should cover the Long trading case and the program will assume the reverse rules for the Short trades. In this sense the strategy uses symmetrical conditions for long and short positions. The general case is that the condition is fulfilled for a short position but not for a long one or vice versa. In some cases, the condition can be fulfilled in both directions of trade at the same time (when using ADX for example). All of the indicators express a logical condition that can either be fulfilled or not fulfilled.
