- XLY slips back into bull phase.
- Mexico, South Korea, China move to bull phase (EWW, EWY, FXI).
I’ve done a major reworking of the Watchlist portion of Slow Trading (and of the daily Watchlist as well).
There are now three sections.
The first section, "From the price channel list", provides coverage of stocks that appear on the price channel analysis.
The second section, "Of interest", tracks stocks that I’m watching for a variety of reasons -- either I find them interesting or they are zombies lurching through my portfolio, the remnants of former trades gone bad. The "Diversification" sub-section tracks global exchange-traded funds, greatly expanded from its previous version.
The third section, "Earnings plays", is a selection of stocks that I have been tracking in anticipation of earnings surprises. I’m phasing that practice out as a primary strategy.
My holdings are marked with an asterisk (*).

Nearing price channel bull phase
About the categories:
- Diversification plays: These don’t closely track the U.S. markets or are based on currencies other than the U.S. dollar.
- Earnings plays: I’m tracking these as a legacy as I phase out the strategy of chasing earnings surprises.
- Of interest: Stocks I’m tracking because I find them to be interesting, although not necessarily as a potential play.
- Zombies: These are failed leftovers from what seemed to be good ideas at the time. They stalk the Watchlist like zombies, tying up resources and frightening small children.
- pfe - Location of the polarized fractal efficiency line.
- pps - Person's Proprietary Signal mode.
- trend - Trend of the polarized fractal efficiency line.

No trader is ever 100 percent successful in his or her trades. Trading in the stock and option markets is risky and uncertain. Each trader must make trading decision decisions for his or her own account, and take responsibility for the consequences.
