For example if a strategy period is H4 and an indicator LTF is D1, the indicator will be calculated on a D1 data series but the signals will be shifted with H4 bars.  When an indicator uses Longer Time Frame (LTF), the Signal shift will be in the strategy main data frame bars.

 +=== Why does not Signal Shift allow negative values? ===
 +
 +Signal shift only **delays** the signal with a number of bars. For example if (on a day chart) something happens in Monday and you want to trade on the next day you will put a Signal Shift to 1. However if something happened on Tuesday you cannot go back in time and trade on Monday. This is why you cannot set the Signal shift to -1 or other negative values.
