Alligator is one of useful Forex Technical Indicator used in Technical Analysis. This indicator have 3 lines, they are a combination of Balance Lines (Moving Averages) that use fractal geometry and nonlinear dynamics.
“Most of the time the market remains stationary. Only for some 15-30% of the time the market generates trends and dealers, are not in the exchange itself, most of their profits from the trends. My grandfather used to repeat:” Even a blind chicken finds its corns, when it is fed at the same time. “We call upon the trading on the trend” a blind chicken market. “It has given us years, but we have an indicator that lets us always keep our powder dry until we reach the blind chicken market”.
The first line, or the chap from Alligator, a line of balancing the substantial period of time. It is for the construction chart – 13 period moving average smoothed, moved to 8 bars in the future. The green line, or the lips of the alligator, is the line of the compensation for the considerable period of time is another step less – 5 smoothed moving average period, moved to 3 bars in the future. The red line or the teeth of alligator, is the line of the compensation for the considerable period of time, is a step less – 8 smoothed moving average period, moved to 5 bars in the future.
How to interpret the lines? If all of them are jolloped, this means that the “Alligator” is asleep, and the more she sleeps, the more they are hungry. Of course, if he wakes up after a long sleep, it is very hungry and starts “hunting for food”, is the price until it is oversaturated. When it happens, he loses interest in food, is the price and then the balance lines meet at the same point. It is when you should fix your profit. It is time to close all positions and wait until the alligator wakes up next time.
