Triangle is an Elliott wave pattern seen during sideways market consolidations, it is composed of 5 corrective sequences. Triangle presents a balance of forces between buyers and sellers, causing a sideways movement that is usually associated with decreasing volume and volatility. This pattern subdivide into 3-3-3-3-3 structures labeled as A,B,C,D,E.
Triangle is continuation pattern which breaks in direction of the preceding move. It could occur in wave 4 in an impulsive structure, wave B in a zig-zag and wave X connector in double and triple threes Elliott wave structures. It could also occur in wave Y of a WXY structure in which case it marks the end of correction.
Note: Triangle must be supported in RSI indicator as well and it never happens in wave 2 of impulsive structure.
Many wavers ignore the importance of decreasing momentum in a triangle formation. We at EWF use RSI to filter out other types of sideways consolidations. We like to see contracting formation in RSI as well when looking at a triangle formation.
