Overview has the Be$t Alligator on the earth: the NinjaTrader alligator indicator that can help you make money. This is Bill Williams’ alligator indicator enhanced by

This spectacular indicator is a complete trading system that identifies all critical phases of the market with a profound metaphor:

  • Alligator sleeping: This means the market is sideways or uncertain. You should stay outside the market.
  • Alligator awakening (without feasting): This means the market has some considerable movements and may prepare for some big trends ahead. You should monitor the market carefully.
  • Alligator feasting: This means the market is trending hard. You should look for only long trades in an uptrend (feasting upstream) or only short trades in a downtrend (feasting downstream).

In reality, the alligator may wake up, then fall asleep, then wake up again… multiple times before feasting. The longer the alligator sleeps, the hungrier it is upon waking – and then it will go feasting more violently.

We added a whole lot of graphical enhancements to help you trade the alligator most conveniently. We also added a bunch of parameter options to let you freely configure the alligator your way. Lips, teeth, jaw can be selected as SMMA (Bill Williams’ original formula) or any of 10 popular MA types, and they can be further smoothed.

A must-consider indicator for trend traders!

■ Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones’ financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

■ Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown; in fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk of actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all which can adversely affect trading results.
