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 Instacart shares

Trading and investing are different in many ways. When trading Instacart shares with IG, 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 would buy and own physical shares using a share dealing account. Because you would own the underlying asset, you could only make money if the share price goes up.

To get started, you would need the full value of your investment. Investing in stock means you could receive dividends if the company pays them, and you would 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.
