Gator Oscillator (GO)

Utility: Identifying Strong Directional Action

Standard Settings: 13 Periods (13,8,5)

The Gator Oscillator is based on the Alligator Oscillator which was developed by Bill Williams.

 

The Gator Oscillator is presented as a histogram below the main price chart and aims to identify strong directional action. The bars found above zero represent the absolute difference between the long-term moving average and the medium-term moving average. The bars below the zero represent the absolute difference between the medium-term moving average and the short-term moving average.

There are four Gator Activity Periods:

(i) Gator awakes

The bars on different sides (naught line) are colored differently

(ii) Gator eats

Green bars on both sides (naught line)

(iii) Gator fills out

Single red bar during the second (eating) phase

(iv) Gator sleeps

The bars on both sides are red
