Phase Transition v Plateau Move

I am looking forward to attending the WEC next week in Orlando.
I have a question about the ECM, stock market alignment, and a phase transition.
I noticed that in a blog in 2014 you noted that a phase transition is usually 52 to 59 weeks. I also noted that the U.S. stock market was out of alignment with the ECM for 3 segments, up until last October 2016, when it took off, finally re-aligning with the ECM.
I am wondering if, with the ECM turning down on 11/24-11/15/17, if the U.S. stock market could potentially follow the ECM down into 2020?
Was the last 52 weeks the phase transition you were looking for?
I know you have been forecasting much higher highs than 23,700. Does the (ultimate) phase transition need to occur 2018-2020 or could it be delayed?
Many thanks for all you do.

ANSWER: We have most likely extended the entire process when we passed the 97-month mark last April. The entire Roaring ’20s was only a 97-month bull market.  That means we can move to the second type of Vertical Market which I call the Plateau Move. This is dealt with in detail in the report on How to Trade a Vertical Market. We will also be focusing on this at the WEC.
