I tried the process again and got the same result. I then tried a yellow pad with scratch x and all swirls came out in my test area. I then waxed my car with the black pad on speed 3 and it looks mint.
So no more compound or polish for me. From now on, wash and wax only.
Thanks to those who offered suggestions.
