09:51 EDTFBFacebook near test of life high, levels to watch
The stock has been trading in a range largely defined by a low at $77 and a high at $85 since February of this year. That is a slightly more bullish range than the previous several months characterized by a low at $75 and a high at $82. The life high for the shares is at $86.07, with the stock breaking the range high and last at $85.65. This move could be another oscillation in the range, or it might presage a genuine breakout in price. With the range having built for so long a period, a breakout could see a more rapid increase in price with a probe to the $90 to $95 area quite possible. A move back below $85 would mean this was another excursion testing the bounds of the range, with next support below at $82.

06:25 EDTGOOGGoogle introduces the News Lab on blog
Google said on its blog that it is launching the News Lab, "a new effort at Google to empower innovation at the intersection of technology and media. Our mission is to collaborate with journalists and entrepreneurs to help build the future of media. And we’re tackling this in three ways: though ensuring our tools are made available to journalists around the world -- and that newsrooms know how to use them; by getting helpful Google data sets in the hands of journalists everywhere; and through programs designed to build on some of the biggest opportunities that exist in the media industry today. The News Lab is a global effort, with teams in the U.S., U.K., France, and Germany to start -- and we’re also powering the training and research arm of Google’s Digital News Initiative in Europe. Google has created many technologies and platforms that have engaged the media industry. As both the media landscape and technology continue to evolve, we believe we can create a more informed world if technologists and journalists work together -- and we’re excited to be part of the effort."
