GameStop has been trading within range over the past couple of months and seems to be forming an ascending triangle on its chart. While the stock has been on the decline as of late, it has found a trendline as support that is creating a wedge formation that could end in the stock breaking out in either direction. With the third-quarter earnings call fast approaching on December 8th, this could be the catalyst the stock needs to break out, or potential break lower if the report is bearish.
