This forex strategy is based on fundamental market principle of momentum. Momentum is confirmed by the moving averages (represented by alligator forex indicator). Momentum signal accuracy is therefore further improved by trading in direction of long term trend.
Strategy is extremely profitable during trending market. In price belt (ranging conditions) it is able to survive due to using equal stop loss and profit levels. Therefore, when market moves chaotic, average loss will resemble costs for flipping a coin.
