GBP/CHF Consolidated in Triangle, Ready for Breakout

The British pound looks to be prepared for a continuation of its long-term downtrend against the Swiss franc. The GBP/CHF currency pair has formed a nearly perfect symmetrical triangle on its weekly chart. A downtrend breakout would definitely mean a bearish trend here.

The triangle is bordered with the yellow lines on the chart screenshot below. The cyan line is my entry level, which is positioned at 10% of the triangles width (at base) subtracted from the bottom border. The green line is my take-profit level, positioned at 100% of the same distance below the bottom border. I will ignore upward breakouts from this trend continuation pattern. Stop-loss is to be set to the high of the breakout candle. Please click on the image to see a bigger chart:
