What differentiates the exponential moving average from  a simple moving average is that that more weight is given to the latest data. Thus, it is  faster and more indicative of short term price movements that more active traders could use to their advantage.

I use the weekly EMA to determine exit and entry points in stocks in an uptrend.

If prices detach from this level, I would sell, and buy back when the price reattaches.
