I am just wondering with the realease of facebook on the market on the 18th do people think this will be a buy or a sell? I'm using these terms as you know i am spread betting.

I only intend to spread bet for the day. So come 2:30pm uk time i will buy for it to go up. What is everyones opinion? do you think it will go up higher than its anticpated value of $25-38 or do you think it will go down for a sell? I have heard many people say it will go up but i have also heard many that it will go down? what are people's opinion and why? thank you!!!
I hear everyone talking about facebook and I've been looking for it on Amazon but could never find it. I didn't realise it wasn't available until the 18th I might buy it if they publish a Kindle version.

If the facebook IPO doesn't do well I would be suprised. I'm thinking about buying a lot myself.

Why do you think fb will do so bad? Just curious. I mean no one really knows for sure. But considering the success of recent tech IPO's. It wouldn't be the worst bet in the world. Or one full of Classic Lulz either. lol

IMO it'll probably hit some stupidly inflated price soon after 18th, then spike up and down by about 50%. Lots of money to be made if you time it right, lots of money to be lost if you time it wrong. The latter is more likely.

Can't wait to see how this plays out. I think if the S&P is down more people would want to take a chance with this IPO. That sounds wierd but psycologically speaking if there is a remote chance of this thing seeing green on a red day, it will definetly sky rocket.

Will all equities trading brokers provide the ability to buy Facebook stock during the IPO or is it limited to a select few?

If the latter, could anyone offer a list of brokers who would provide this service?

They have been trying to get me to part with 10K to buy pre-IPO at $45.
They say it should go up to $100 straight away.

The only winners are going to be the people charging fees and comms on the IPO itself.
Any chance you can get let me know who the brokers are? i'll be interested to buy thanks!
