What do FB, TWTR and BABA have in common? SNAP next?

First thing these companies have in common is that they do not produce any real products, it's all about advertising and big data. Secondly, they show the same pattern of price after IPO (initial public offering). The pattern that I'm referring to is the following: Facebook drops after the IPO, forms

FEB 21 S&P500 futures left the green uptrend, and need to close > 2370 to get back inside of the green trend channel. If it breaks 2337 to the downside, then expect 2329 to be tested. A new SELL signal is triggered if the S&P500 closes < 2329, so still 1.5%
