Do you use simple or exponential moving averages or a mixture of the two. I would just like to know what you are referring to when it comes to stop placement etc.
Dr. K uses the 10, 50, and 200-day simple moving averages, and 20-day exponential. Gil uses the 10, 50, and 200-day simple moving averages, 20-day exponential, and for shorting he also throws in the 65-day exponential moving average.
There is no reason to use one over the other - they are just used to these and have a good feel for how stocks act around them. Whichever moving averages you decide to use, create rules around them so they match your risk tolerance levels.
