Alligator and envelopes trend following forex strategy

Reliable and simple forex strategy, based on alligator and envelopes forex indicator. Alligator is the indicator used to identify current market trend. Envelopes will confirm the entry once the price breaks above/ below the tunnel. This momentum signal is quite accurate, especially when it comes to avoiding market reversals. Price will simply not return within the tunnel to reset it for another entry. This leaves alligator indicator enough time to catch up to new market conditions.
