There will be arbitrage play by traders. Pay special attention to YHOO. ASKJ and MSFT are interesting too.

In intital trading YHOO is lower, not a good sign for GOOG's price movement. Of course, it can channge in a second.

Yah, they haven't hit the secondary market yet. I'm betting it won't start until at least 11:30 or so.

NASDAQ says two trades at $135 & $140 shouldn't have gone through.

All I can say is bring it on :)

Stop/start/stop/start/stop. Looks like Nasdaq got carried away, if it does get going at 65% up there will be some big smiles in The Plex.

Very low volume, though. Could just be a fluke. I'm only seeing 650 shares traded. Bid at 49. Ask at 140.929.

I won't be crying either.

"There were two trades, they should not have gone. The stock was not open for trading," said Ginger Stennett, a Nasdaq Marketwatch analyst.

I get so confused by the comments such as "well done Google" or "they must be all smiles at the Googleplex" because the first indication is that the price will jump significantly. First off this is the most highly anticipated IPO in many years. Prices are going to bounce all over the place. Let's say that the price stabilizes at around $150. That, to me makes the IPO an excellent example of how not to do it.

Let's say a fair price for a Google share is $150. Had they gone through the traditional methods, they would have pulled in $150 less the traditional 15% discount or $127.50. That means Brin's bravado cost his company several billion dollars in working capital. Hey, great going guys. You must be all smiles.

The only winners today are the VCs and investment bankers who bought in and sold out.

It was ~102 and starting to falling down. It is just an initial reaction since all auction traders got only 74% of the volumes they were asking for.
