What Happens Inside The Triangles?

In a bullish triangle, the bulls an bears are having a massive fight. Initially, the bulls look to be winning, but the bears won’t give up without a fight. As the bulls push prices up to a certain level, the bears step in, pushing prices down. The same cycle repeats, forming a triangle.

In a bearish triangle, the bears force prices down before the bulls wake up to push prices back up. This cycle repeats, forming a triangle.
