The strategies on the chart assume a bias to selling on a break to the downside of this triangle given the overbought nature of the longer term trend.

One possibility would be to sell if price rallies a bit and again fails at the triangle resistance.  This looks to position for an early entry on a break to the downside.

The other possibility is to sell if price drops below the triangle support.

Many analysts adopt a strategy of leaving triangle set ups if price works it’s way too far into the corner before breaking out. This one has a fair way to go before reaching that stage.
