Of the others, TD and DNOW confirmed their signals but then showed momentum in the opposite direction, and PCLN and GNRC failed confirmation by moving back within their 20-day price channels.
LO has relatively low implied volatility, making it unsuitable for the kind of higher velocity trades that I'm looking for these days. RIG has the volatility, but it announces earnings on Feb. 25. My chances of making a profit if I trade around earnings is far greater than if I trade now, so I'm inclined to wait.
Bottom line: No trade based on Monday's markets.
