Let's dive into IPO's and where to go online to get correct information on upcoming drops. Yesterday I traded on $VSME . No doubt this was a very high risk trade. I first decided on my time frame. For me, this was not an investment but rather a day trade opportunity. I had settled funds in my account so I decided to take the trade and risk. IPO is the Initial Public Offering of a company. One on the radar that could be affected by the upcoming possible government shutdown is Birkenstock Holdings under the ticker $birk. The company has been on many people's watch. If the government shuts down, IPO's will be put on hold. The place I go to get information on IPO's is directly from the Nasdaq or the NYSE. I asked Bard AI to explain IPO's in terms of price action to us and here is the response: The price action of an IPO on the first day is typically very volatile. This is because there is a lot of pent-up demand for the shares, as well as a lot of uncertainty about what the fair market value of the company is. When the IPO opens, the initial price is determined by a process called bookbuilding. In bookbuilding, underwriters gauge investor demand for the shares and set the price accordingly. The goal is to set a price that will allow the company to raise the desired amount of capital while also ensuring that the shares are not underpriced or overpriced. Once the IPO opens, the shares trade freely on the open market. This means that buyers and sellers can agree on any price that they want. As a result, the stock price can fluctuate wildly in the early hours of trading. In some cases, the stock price may open significantly higher than the IPO price. This is known as a "pop." Pops are often caused by a combination of factors, including high investor demand, short supply, and excitement about the company's prospects. However, pops can also be fleeting. Many IPOs experience a "sell-the-news" event after the first day of trading. This is because some investors who bought the shares at the IPO price may decide to sell them for a profit. Other IPOs may simply trade within a narrow range on the first day of trading. This is because it may take some time for the market to determine the fair market value of the company. Overall, the price action of an IPO on the first day can be very unpredictable. Investors should carefully consider their investment goals and risk tolerance before investing in any IPO. Here are some tips for investing in IPOs: ➡️Do your research on the company and the IPO itself. ➡️Understand the risks involved in investing in IPOs. ➡️Only invest money that you can afford to lose. ➡️Have a plan for how you will sell your shares if you need to. Source: Bard AI Remember, IPOs are not for everyone. If you are not comfortable with the risks involved, you should avoid investing in them. #faithinmarkets #publiccommunity #nasdaq #IPO #stocks #volatile #duediligence I am not a financial advisor.

Investments in T-bills involve a variety of risks, including credit risk, interest rate risk, and liquidity risk.
