long time before, i told all IPO investors to exit MCX, but lot of people where telling to buy for target of 1800-2000-3000. See where it is now. I told u can buy below IPO price..... only thing we have to do is to wait for opportune moment.

Good luck

It seems that MCX is getting consolidated at 1250 - 1350 range.

If it moves above 1350 then it is sure BUY share. (I will)

Other wise wait and watch.

Real Game will start in MCX after all retailers exit at this price or around 1150/-. Take any IPO true valuation will soon emerge as selling pressure eases which will in coming couple of says.
669.1. Vip jpr |   Link |Mar 13, 2012 11:16:15 AM
Seems true. Even now it's around 5% + from yesterday's closing price.
669.2. AJEET P SINGH |   Link |Mar 14, 2012 7:32:45 PM
I think it will fallow the same trend as Jubillent and Lovable.
i.e. poor listing so that retail investers sell their shares at nominal price
afterward it will see very very huge return.
I will hold it unless it goes below issue price.
