COIN isn't even trading yet from what I can see, but I could have called any number of my brokers to get shares - but it would have been a crap shoot as to whether the price offered would end up being higher or lower than the open. Typically on these highly anticipated IPOs the stock goes up a lot, then fades badly, and eventually goes much higher. At least, that is what I observed over the past years with Google, Facebook, AliBaba, etc.
COIN is one hot potato! Looks like it opened at 380 or so, jumped to 429, and has bottomed out around 362...so far. There were plenty of opportunities to trade it long today but I declined. I was thinking at 375, but then noticed that it barely even popped from there, so I figured it might dump more and just left it alone.
I bought a whopping 5 shares at $325. No idea if it will be $100 or $1000. I did sell my trading HERO for an $85 gain after many weeks. So now NAK, NOK, and (just bought) NBEV underwater in Ďtradingí. Overall pretty flat today. My coinbase is Ďlong termí for me.
I sold AMZN I bot yesterday today at 3386, that was a great trade, especially considering that it was underwater at the close yesterday.
I missed its dip below 3370 just now for another trade today.
SooPoo at the moment your 325 entry on COIN looks good! I was trying to get 1000 shares for a trade today but I was too cheap and didn't get any before it took off.
Back down to $340. I'm sure it will be very volatile for a while. I only bought 5 shares as it is more for me to stay interested in it than to make any real money. Another up day so far overall. The bubble keeps getting bigger!
