    Hi Everyone, I am a newbie to US stock markets. Following are some questions I am concerned with:

    1. What does it mean by "Post-Offering Amount" and "Offering Amount"

    2. Typically, how soon a stock would start to trade after filing with SEC and how should I do to avoid missing the first trading day of that company.

    3. What are the major difference between IPO in NASDAQ and New York Stock Exchange, I mean, in terms of volitility, opening premium and etc.?

    4. Would an IPO with 250 million be considered as big, small or typical IPO?

    Thank you in advance. Any comments are appreciated.
