The Alligator indicator (Jaws, Teeth, Lips) trading system

The Alligator indicator is the core of the system. This indicator determines the direction
in which we will trade. The Alligator is essentially made up of three key components, the
Jaw, the Teeth and the Lips.
 The Alligator’s Jaw is represented by the Blue line. This line is a 13 period

Smoothed Moving Average which is shifted 5 bars into the future.
 The Alligator’s Lips is represented by the Green line. This line is a 5 period
Smoothed Moving Average which is shifted 3 bars into the future.
As you can see on the image below, when the Alligator Lips (Green line) and Teeth
(Red line) are above the Jaws (Blue line) the market is considered to be in an uptrend.
On the image , you can see that when the Alligator Lips (Green line) and Teeth
(Red line) are below the Jaws (Blue line) the market is considered to be in a downtrend.
As you can see, the Alligator indicator helps us determine the trend direction and the
RSI serves to confirm the signal. On the image below you can see an example of how
the RSI indicator helps confirm the trend   direction we have determined using the Alligator indicator. If the RSI line is above the 50 level it serves as confirmation that the market is in an
upward trend. On the other hand, if the RSI is below the 50 level it serves as confirmation that the market is in a downward trend.
