The very definition of such a triangle is, therefore, a>b>c>d>e. The name of such a triangle comes from the fact that it is evolving on the horizontal and, starting from its beginning, the price will form a series of ups and downs around that level until eventually, they will break higher or lower.

Horizontal contracting reveals when the b wave of zigzag or as the fourth wave turns into an impulsive wave.

Irregular Contracting Triangle Pattern

An irregular contracting triangle pattern is commonly similar to the a-c and b-d trend line points. But there is the difference that a wave is smaller than the b wave.

The patterns will show only when wave c is completed. Both evolve similarly to a horizontal triangle. While a horizontal triangle is pretty common, an irregular contracting triangle pattern appears in most cases in the forex market.

Well, it's quite a smart move, this pattern shows the fake side that attracts traders from the wrong side. 

Running Contracting Triangle Pattern

Overall, this triangle pattern means it will run until the triangle is broken and the b-d trend line is the one that holds the key for any entry. In this triangle, the d wave is bigger than the c wave like the b wave is bigger than a wave.

In running the contracting triangle pattern, you can find the b wave is the longest one of all waves and the d wave is the shortest one.
