Fractal Alligator System

Postby yeders » Fri Feb 21, 2014 12:50 am

Hi there,

So I've been looking at this forum for a little while, but it has now come to a point that I have a question about the indicators that are contained within MarketScope.

The Fractal Alligator System, is one indicator that I can't work out how to read its output, take the example below:
EUR/USD |FRACTAL_ALLIGATOR_SYSTEM(EUR/USD) | FRACTAL_ALLIGATOR_SYSTEM:Set Buy @1.37599,02/18/2014 15:43:00 | 19/02/2014 7:46 | 1.37588

Where I am confused, is that its telling me to "buy" in the past.
So the time stamp on the note to BUY is at 18/2/2014 @ 15.43, but the time at which this alert flagged, is the following day (19/2/14), at 7:46 am.

I am in Sydney, currently +1100GMT, so by some calculations, the time for this stamp to be in the future would have needed to be at least Central America time (-0600 GMT).

Could someone confirm, or correct me on this?

Thank you very much!

Hi yeders,

The time in the strategy messages is EST time.

Thanks for that.

So if its EST, which is -0500 GMT and I'm +1100GMT, then the time it is suggesting to buy is:
19-02-14 07:43

Which is 3 minutes in the past.
Is this how the indicator is meant to work?

Thanks
yeders
