Shoulder placement (Deadlift, Clean, Snatch)

I have been wondering about this for some time.

At the moment just prior to pulling a deadlift, clean or snatch from the floor, your shoulders can be in a variety of positons.

On one extreme, the shoulders can be rolled forward of the body, as if they were slouching. At the other extreme, your shoulders can be pinched together as if you were standing at attention.

Where should they be prior to the pulls?

Thanks!

If the above doesnt make sense, I can try to rearticulate.
