How Gator Oscillator Work

Gator Oscillator is derived from alligator indicator. So this is supplementary of alligators.

Histogram bar formed by the difference of jaw, teeth, and lips lines,& the value will be formed as a histogram bar.

Jaw, Teeth & Lips is the simple moving average of 13,8 &5 with the offset value of 8,5 & 3.

Formation of Histogram Bars above the zero line:

Above the Zero line Histogram bar will be formed by the difference between Jaw & Teeth value. Increasing the height of the Histogram bar depending on the difference of Jaw and Teeth value. For example, jaw value is 10 & teeth value 7, Then the difference is 3, so above the zero line Histogram bar will be formed height of 3 value.

If jaw value is 10 & teeth value is 14. Then the difference is 4. So above the zero line Histogram bar will be formed with a height of 4 value. if jaw & teeth value is Increasing compared to the previous value then a Green Histogram bar will be formed.

If the difference of Jaw & teeth value is decreasing compared to the previous value then the Red Histogram bar will be formed.

Formation of Histogram Bars Below the zero line:

Below the zero line, the Histogram bar will be formed by the difference between teeth & Lips value. Below the zero line, Increasing the height of the Histogram bar depending on the difference between teeth and Lips value. For example teeth value is 13 & lips value 8. Then the difference is 5, so below the zero line Histogram bar will be formed height of 5 value.

If Lips value is 16 & teeth value is 9. Then the difference is 7. So below the zero line Histogram bar will be formed with a height of 7 value. if the difference of teeth & lips value is Increasing compared to the previous value then a green Histogram bar will be formed.

If the difference between teeth & lips value is decreasing compared to previous value then the Red Histogram bar will be formed.
