Finding Great IPO's ~ Getting the Rocket Stock Going Public

I am going to give you a website that will allow you to research and look up new companies that are coming to market.  You realize reading past articles I am fond of IPO's (Initial Public Offerings) because the upward potential of the company is limitless.  At the same time you are never sure it will not go belly up or bankrupt in two years. Let's take a look at how this process works.  First usually Venture Capitalists provide funds to the new start up in hopes of recovering their investment after the company goes public.  If you watch the HBO show "Silicon Valley" then you are familiar with this process as the fictional company Pied Piper is a bunch of guys working out of their home much like Apple when it first started always looking for the next big investor.

So I am trying to gain information to provide for my readers what type of direction the Pundits and Analysts believe the market will take next Wednesday November 7, 2018.  This information to me is important since I am now currently a full time day trader in the market and would benefit from this information. It is interesting I can not find any information about the Republican supposed "Red Wave" in other words, not only isn't there one but Analysts do not consider it a factor; as a matter of fact one article published by CNBC's Fred Imbert & Jacob Pramuk state that 85% of Analysts believe the Democrats will take the house but loose the Senate. This sets up for a bullish looking market going forward; (traditionally) but depending on the number of seats the Democrats pick up it will more than likely lead to a stalemate i
