MCX IPO be become first IPO to list with listing price discovery regulation

MCX IPO, which will list its Equity Shares on the exchanges on Friday, March 9, 2012, will also be the first company to list its shares under the new SEBI regulation of having a mandatory call auction session in the first hour

According to the new regulation envisaged by the market regulator SEBI, there would be a price discovery mechanism in place for IPO listings through a call auction in the first hour of trade. Based on the price arrived at through the call auction between 9:00 am and 10:00 am, there will be a 20% circuit filter on the stock for the rest of the session.

Thus, for instance, if in the first hour of trade, MCX gets a base price of Rs.1400, then the stock price can hover 20% on either side, i.e. in the range of Rs.1120 to Rs.1680 during the rest of the trading session. If the base price is discovered at Rs.1500, then the stock price can roam around in the range of Rs.1200 to Rs.1800 and so on.
