Alligator forex indicator (combination of moving averages) is used to take only trend following positions. Trading in the direction of the trend improves success rate of this forex strategy drastically.

 

Strategy uses equal stop and take profit levels. It does not try to game the market by artificially widening profit targets. Therefore, it is viable even in the most unsuitable market conditions and ready to explode with profits during a trend.

 

Strategy is easy to master as it requires only a few simple rules to be mastered.

 

Indicators used in the forex strategy

Bollinger bands (default period of 20). Purpose: Identify price tunnel, with volatility included in the calculation. More accurate method than manual tunnel drawing. It is able to better adapt to shattered wave structure of the price in current markets.

Alligator forex indicator (130,80,50). Purpose: Correct trend identification alone can improve success rate of any forex trading strategy drastically. Alligator is a simple and robust combination of basic moving averages that works very well in this scalping strategy.

Plot both of the indicators in 5 min chart of any major currency pair.

 

For the best results, trade with professional ECN/STP broker with MT4. If you can't trade with profit. Automatically copy the traders that are already profitable.
