Triangle Formation Will Show You the Direction

Tomasz Wiśniewski
·2-min read

In today’s trading sniper I would like to show you the power of triangle patterns and I will do it using rather exotic currency pairs. Triangles, especially ascending and descending ones are super powerful formations, which can be a reliable and trustworthy friend of every technical trader.

First instrument is the CADCHF, where we have a beautiful ascending triangle pattern. This is promoting a breakout to the upside and it is happening as we speak. Since today, the price couldn’t break the 0.693 resistance. The first day of September brings us an attack and in consequence a breakout which leads to a mid-term buy signal.

An example how effective an ascending triangle can be is seen on the AUDJPY chart, where the ascending triangle has been present since June. Last week, the price finally broke the 76.6 resistance, which brought us a legitimate buy signal. Sentiment here is definitely positive.

Triangles can work both ways, the two previous examples were of ascending triangles with a horizontal resistance and now I will show you the descending version of this pattern – with a horizontal support. It can be spotted on the EURNOK, where the price is going lower since the end of March. A recent breakout of the lower line of the triangle gives us a proper sell signal. Sentiment here is negative.
