How to trade the Robinhood IPO

Before the listing

IG Bank offers an exclusive range of grey markets, based on a prediction of a company’s market cap at the end of its first trading day. If available for Robinhood, you can:

  • ‘Buy’ (go long) if you think the market cap will be higher than the price indicated
  • ‘Sell’ (go short) if you think the market cap will be lower than the price indicated

After the listing

With IG Bank, you can get exposure to Robinhood shares in the same way as you would with any other shares listed on the stock market. You can speculate on share price movements using CFDs.

What are grey markets and how do they work?

Grey markets enable traders to get exposure to a company before it lists on a stock exchange. When you decide to trade the grey market, you’re trading on the estimated market valuation of a company. The official valuation is only released after the first day of trading – and it is based on the demand shown by the market that day.

So, if you think a company’s market cap will be higher than the grey market price, you’ll ‘buy’. If you think it will be lower than the grey market price, you’ll sell.

Trading vs investing in Robinhood shares

Trading and investing are different in many ways. When trading Robinhood shares with IG Bank, you’ll use CFD trading to speculate on share price movements. Because you don’t own any underlying assets when trading, you can speculate on both rising and falling prices.

You’ll only need a small deposit – known as margin – to open your position, while still getting exposure to the full value of the trade. Margin isn’t a direct cost to you, but it can have a big impact on the affordability of your trade.

When investing in shares, you’ll buy and own physical shares using a share dealing account. Because you’ll own the underlying asset, you can only make money if the share price goes up.

To get started, you’ll need the full value of your investment. Note that investing in stock means you could receive dividends if the company pays them, and you will have shareholder rights.

How do IPOs work?

An IPO occurs when a company decides to start selling its shares to the public. Most companies list shares to raise capital to fund expansion, pay debts, attract and retain talent, or monetise assets.

First, an audit must be conducted – considering all aspects of the company’s financials. Then, the business has to prepare a registration statement to file with the appropriate exchange commission. If approved, the company will list a defined number of shares at a price set by an investment bank. The shares will be available for sale through the chosen stock exchange.
