Triangle patterns by definition are consolidation patterns. The biggest issue is which direction to they break. When the two lines converge in a triangle, it forces either a breakout or breakdown. In other words, there is no other place for the stock to go when the two lines come together. In the case of Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), the time is now. There will either be a breakout or breakdown in the stock this week. Investors should simply watch for the first close above or belowt he triangle and either buy or short the stock. Big profits will follow as the move should be significant.
