The Alligator Indicator was developed by Bill Williams and combines moving averages with fractal geometry. The indicator helps traders to identify if the market is trending. It consists of 3 lines: the blue line (aka the Alligator's Jaw), the red Line (aka the Alligator's Teeth) and the green Line (aka the Alligator's Lips). Each have different lookback periods and offsets that can be set by the user. The alligator is easy to use and can find trade setups, based on how close together or how far apart the lines are, resembling an alligator opening and closing his mouth. This indicator can be used in combination with other analysis techniques.
