A Massive Triangle Takes Shape for the Home Construction iShares

 | 

The Home Construction iShares (ITB) has gone nowhere since August 2009. After first crossing back above 12.75 in early August 2009, the ETF has meandered above/below this level the last 23 months. On the right half of the range, a large Symmetrical Triangle is taking shape. A break from this Triangle would trigger the next directional signal and could have ramifications for the broader market.
