Five or Six months was generally the length of the runs during the 90s.  Except for the nine month run that followed the 15 month consolidation in 93 - 94.

Also, I can't believe the value that IBD provides with LeaderBoard.  The Big Picture intraday updates in combonation with the leading stock charts and mark ups are like having tip, top hedge fund staff on your payroll. 

I do not work for IBD and I highly recommend LeaderBoard. Try the free trial.  More subscribers will enhance the dialogue on the MarketSmith message board.

Keep the company of leaders.
