Alligator with Alert for MT4 and MT5 | FREE Forex Trading Indicator

Alligator Alert is a free MT4/MT5 indicator that you can download here and use in your MetaTrader to receive notifications via email, mobile app, and platform when Alligator lines align properly.

What Is Alligator Indicator?

Bill Williams developed a number of technical indicators that are widely used as the foundation for trading strategies. Alligator is one of these indicators.



Bill Williams created this indicator by combining the following three moving averages:

  • Jaw — a smoothed moving average of period 13 and shift 8.
  • Teeth — a smoothed moving average of period 8 and shift 5.
  • Lips — a smoothed moving average of period 5 and shift 3.

Alligator Alert Indicator

The MetaTrader platform includes Bill Williams’ Alligator as a standard indicator, but it does not have a notification feature.

Traders frequently want to be notified when all three moving averages are one on top of the other. This situation typically indicates the possibility of a trading opportunity.

You can use such alerts in both trend following and trend reversal strategies.

This missing MetaTrader feature appears in our Alligator Alert indicator presented below.

This indicator allows you to receive alerts when Alligator starts opening its mouth, that is, when the moving averages are all aligned. You can receive notifications via:

  • Email
  • Mobile app
  • On screen
