Cannot say anything about Face Book yet sine all will depend on the perception of the trades and the trading volumes that happen on the 18th May

Regardless what everyone on here says, the demand is going to be huge for this IPO. Even if it is considered overvalued (I don't think it is), sheer speculation and volume will drive this one skyward.

As a small investor though, I think you'll struggle hugely trying to come by any of this stock, and by the time you do, all the fun will be over.

Good luck.

The Facebook IPO is a little bit interesting all right.
Just after logging into to my IGIndex account for the first time in about 2 years to have a look after getting an email talking about the Facebook IPO. (I'm surprised that my account is still working and I still have a positive account balance )

Anyway it seems that you trade Facebook already with IG in some sort of a grey market. Up until sometime tonight, and then it launches properly.

In my opinion I'd stay well clear of Facebook on it's first day. But it will still be a bit interesting !

You kind of can short the stock with IGIndex's grey market offering until roughly 14:30 today !

Their grey market is based on a market capitalisation figure rather than share price. And at the moment they have it valued at $130.7 billion which is somewhere over $40 per share. Which is more than the launch price.

After that I'm not sure what IG are planning.
