I'd like to build on my opening analysis of Facebook (FB), Amazon (AMZN) and other popular tech stocks by looking at the Internet's "power of free" concept.
The two factors together create extremely strong underlying support.
Let's look at this in stages.

My Takeaways and Observations Real Money Pro($)

Stocks slid sharply in the final hour to finish at the day's lows after a real roller coaster of a day! Booyah! The U.S. dollar weakened. The price of crude oil rose by 63 cents to $45.96. Gold climbed by $17 to $1,267. Silver rose by 30 cents. Agricultural commodities: wheat +1.50, corn +7.00, soybean flat and oats -2.25. Bonds rose in price, declined in yield. The yield on the 10-year U.S. note dropped by three basis points to 1.83% and the long bond by only one basis points to yield 2.68%. Municipals were well-bid. Closed-end municipal bond funds were mixed. The high-yield market showed little price movement. Blackstone/GSO Strategic Credit Fund (BGB), up earlier in the day, closed down a dime. Banks are at the lows of the day. I double my XLF short today. JPMorgan Chase (JPM) and Citigroup (C) were down by about a half a beaner, while Bank of America (BAC) slid by 25 cents. Brokerages were lower. Morgan Stanley (MS) was down 30 cents and Goldman Sachs (GS) was off about $2.50. Life insurance, the object of my disaffection, got schmeissed with dollar-plus losses for MetLife (MET), Lincoln National (LNC) and Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B). My long Hartford Financial Services Group (HIG) also was lower by a similar amount. Retail stocks were broadly lower, led by Bed, Bath & Beyond (BBBY), Home Depot (HD) and Lowe's (LOW). Short Nordstrom (JWN) was off 65 cents. Old media sank, led by IBM (IBM), down $3.35, and Microsoft (MSFT), down $1.30. Auto stocks held well, with a good gain for Ford (F), up 45 cents. Energy stocks fell despite a higher commodity price. Schlumberger (SLB) was down $1.15 and Exxon Mobil (XOM) off 80 cents. Biotech was only slightly lower. Allergan (AGN) was down a beaner. Ag equipment was under pressure, with Deere (DE) and Caterpillar (CAT) down about 1% each. Media was mixed, though Disney (DIS) was down $1.20 after a rich premium deal for Comcast (CMCSA) to acquire DreamWorks (DWA) was announced. (T)FANG was lower, save Facebook (FB), which was up nearly $8. NOSH saw all components lower. CRABBY components all were lower as well. Apple (AAPL) was a leader on the downside, off $3. Short/sell, don't hold.  Oaktree Capital Group (OAK) was lower after earnings (I'll review tomorrow). Some good stuff on Real Money Pro today: Jim "El Capitan" Cramer on the worst over for pharma.  RevShark is running with the bulls.  Tim Melvin on Carlyle Group (CG) and its tons of cash.  Tim "Not Judy or Phil" Collins on playing earnings-related volatility of Amazon (AMZN), LinkedIn (LNKD) and Expedia (EXPE).  Daniel "Oil Vey" Dicker on Hess (HES) over Pioneer Natural Resources (PXD). 
With each company reporting Thursday night, plotting past moves tells us what to expect.
