I thought that I had read somewhere that shorter consolidations favored continuation of the prior move, while longer consolidations were more suggestive of an impending reversal.

Just an opinion...but it would seem to me that Traders would tend to leave a stock if the sideways movement continued for very long to move on to better pastures...the result could then be a reversal.

I've nothing to back up my opinion tho'
