May be, you may try out (bahut jhamela), Williams Alligator in TT: Keyword Documentation (

Basically if the Alligator is sleeping - the lips (fast MA), teeth (middle MA) and jaw (slow MA) are criss crossing and price is stuck b/w the lip and jaw then Most Likely it’s not a clear trend.

Tradetron does not have the Ichimoku Cloud indicator. Otherwise if the price stuck inside the cloud then it may be inferred as sideways.
