How To Trade Triangle Patterns

There are basically 3 types of triangle patterns in technical analysis: symmetrical, ascending, and descending. They usually represent continuation patterns.

Bullish Triangle Pattern

There are 2 types of bullish triangle patterns - symmetrical and ascending as demonstrated in the following figures:

Here's another stock (FEED) that formed a symmetrical triangle in April.  The stock jumped from $2.5 a share to $8 in less than 3 months. That is a 220% gain in value.

Let's look at a stock with an ascending triangle, TSL, which is a solar company I used to swing trade pretty often. The stock doubled in value from $14 a share to $28 in one month right after it formed an ascending triangle in May.
