while longer consolidations were more suggestive of an impending reversal.

I haven't read this. Many times longer consolidations will produce more powerful breakouts/breakdowns in the direction of the trend.

According to E&M if a triangle gets near it's apex it may just continue to consolidate and not move much for a while. But that's a different issue.
