Alligator is an indicator used to guide the market, which helps you predict the upcoming price movement. Alligator simulates the behavior of crocodiles to define the state of the market.
Alligator indicator consists of 3 SMMA moving averages.
Jaws (Red line) = SMMA (Average price, 13,8).
Teeth (Orange line) = SMMA (Average price, 8,5).
Lips (Yellow line) = SMMA (Average price, 5,3).
