Take a look at the 1-year chart of WDAY below with my added notations:

As you can see in the chart above, a symmetrical triangle pattern (blue) has formed in the chart of WDAY.  As the support and resistance lines converge on each other, the pattern is created. Since there is no true way to know which way the stock will break, most traders will wait for the breakout or breakdown before entering a trade.

A trader could enter a long position on a break above the down trending resistance with a protective stop set under the entry level. However, if the stock were to break below the trend line support, a short trade could be entered with a protective stop above the trend line.
