IREDA IPO GMP

Analysts note a robust investor response to the IREDA IPO, suggesting that the surge in grey market sentiment may be attributed to the strong reception.

IREDA IPO GMP or grey market premium today is 10 per share, the same as yesterday and the day before. This indicates the IREDA share price is likely to list at a premium of 31.23 percent at 42. However, the GMP has reduced from 12 and 11 on November 23 and November 24, respectively. 'Grey market premium' indicates investors' readiness to pay more than the issue price.

However, one must note that grey market premium is only an indicator of how the company's shares are performing in the unlisted market and can change quickly.
