About The Forex Technical Indicators Used
The Alligator is a technical indicator by Bill Williams, introduced in 1995.
The indicator is comprised of three lines that are overlaid on the activity chart.
The lines represent the jaw, the teeth and the lips of the Alligator.
Forex traders tend to use this indicator to gauge trend and its likely direction.
The QQE is short for Qualitative Quantitative Estimation, and represents a Metatrader 4 forex indicator that uses the smoothed Moving Average of Relative Strength Index indicator.
It is therefore an oscillator that tries to find discrepancies in which price forms a new maximum while overcoming the level of its previous maximum.
