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.
I would have thought that as marketmakers SBs can allow shorting if it's their risk. Might be a bad idea to try, though, if there's going to be a huge spike up.

So who's buying at open? or who's brave enough to admit it?

Just saw a video on Bloomberg of some geezer saying $100/share. Lulztopia.

Re: facebook IPO 18th May Predictions

mrniceguychris started this thread I'd like to buy right at opening but after seeing linkedin's chart....im a bit scared to now.

LinkedIn IPO: shares double on first day - May. 19, 2011

Looks like linkedin went up a bit then dropped and went up again. My worry is buying right at the start and seeing yourself get stopped out from your stop loss....then to see it go up massively and kick yourself in the face....so im still 50/50 when to buy! but im defo buying today!!!

Take a look at Zillow IPO (Z). Priced at $20. Opened trading at $60, fell to $45 within 1 minute, closed at $34

Just not a good idea. But, that's my opinion.

Just think how much you could have made with fluky timing, though.
