IPO Warrior Matt Hammond Joins 'Power Hour' To Talk Trading Coinbase

The biggest mistake he made when he started trading IPOs was placing market orders after trading became available, Hammond said. Setting a limit order before the company goes live creates the opportunity to buy shares right away, he added.
Jacobi explained that the market maker tries to figure out a fair price for the stock to start trading by determining the prices where the buyers and sellers of the stock are lined up.
