Here are my updated random thoughts on the market as of 12:38 p.m. EDT:

Twitter (NYSE: TWTR) still trades funky, like someone has been letting the air out of the tires since the company missed on earnings.

Then again, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) and LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD) are also underperforming, so perhaps it's something in the space. Either way, these names led the tape higher, so it's worth noting.

The double- or triple-leveraged ETFs are decent vehicles intraday but get dicey when held for longer time horizons.

It looks like China is going the "debt destruction" route; time will tell if it will be orderly.

I still believe there will be a time to buy China and short the US on a pairs basis; I'm just not sure when that will be. If the Shanghai Composite (SHA:000001) breaks 1985 (the level, not the year), it has a 10% risk to the downside from there.

Headlines aside, it's worth remembering that textbook technical analysis dictates a retest of breakout levels; those levels are S&P (INDEXSP:.INX) 1850, NDX (INDEXNASDAQ:NDX) 3640, and Russell (INDEXRUSSELL:RUT) 1182.

BKX (INDEXSP:BKX) 71.50 and TRAN (INDEXDJX:DJT) 7600 would "confirm" the breakout, if and when one should happen.

And just like that, the VXO (INDEXCBOE:VXO) is off 17.5%.

Minyan March Madness deadline is Thursday, March 20, at 11 a.m EDT. Good luck!
