This IPO was really good...its just because the market conditions , it didnt list above the issue price.
If this would have listed a day or 2 before, I am sure you all would have been out without making a loss if not in profit.

Best way is don't invest in any IPO or shares in this market. Just mean...purchase some momentum shares when market is down by > 4% today and sell them when u see even a small profit....

So, forget investing
Enjoy Trading...
Or stay out of the market....and enjoy !!!

it seems everybody caught in wrong foot in this ipo, although i am regular to this board and i find interesting observations of praksh ipo and mostly from sher e punjab and have benefitted a lot in on mobile and titagarh and lastly austral coke. but they all failed to tract this small ipo 20 microns and i have made heavily loss inspite of my gut feeling which say do not invest in these conditions because conditions are not conducive at the time of investing.

so do not feelso bad about it after all they are humans and if you have benefitted a lot from them let's forget them and alwasy listed to yourself before investing and keep listing to thier views also.

It's now confirmed that Mr. Prakashipo is a big gas ballon. See his message no. 106 and other messages. I had always said that this fellow misguides investors. He becomes lucky some times so the foolish investors belive him and ask for his recommendations.
But now after the listing of 20Microns which is now available at 33 (instead of 75/80 as per his prediction) he shouls as promised stop giving his views. Hopefully sense will prevail in his gas filled head.

Sell this stock. This is into commodity sector. Tata steel is available at cheaper PE multiples than this stock..
Disclaimer: I have applied for this IPO for 2 lots and didnot got allotment(Lucky enough!)

It shud have listed on 1st october. but the revised listing date caused a havoc. Whole market is down then who will buy this share..? so many persons reported operator involvement in this ipo but if at there is any operator involvement, it shud have gone above rs.100. the best thing is that those who have applied in full got 205 shares only and hence the loss is minimum.

Time to accumulate/ Hold on this stock. May go up in the 2nd half of trade if operators play on it. Market may go down to 4600 in next few trading sessions and from that level there will be pullback rally. In the rally this stock will go upto 70-80 levels.
