Three survived from Friday's market session, all with bull signals. (See"Monday's Prospects".)
One, ITW, has an insufficiently bullish chart to support entering into a bull position; the price is rising but it has not yet broken above resistance.
A second, LLY, failed confirmation by dropping back within its 20-day price channel.
The third early-round survivor, the health-care exchange-traded fund XLV, continued to trade above its price channel and, indeed, set a fresh higher high before retracing a bit. Its three-year chart is bullish, having broken above resistance.
I shall post an analysis of XLV as potential bull play under my shorter-term rules prior to the closing bell.
Three symbols from Thursday's session were up for consideration today under my earnings exception: DPS with a bull signal, and CAKE and CRI with bear signals. Confirmation required that the price break above the high set on the second trading day after the earnings announcement. All three symbols failed that test.
