Market capitalization, free float, and delivery volumes

Volumes on the BSE were generally lower than on the NSE, but the trend was once again the same. The order book through the day showed a lot of strength and that almost sustained till the close of trading session, with very little hint of any profit booking even by the close of the trading session. The sharp rally in the Nifty and the Sensex did help the stock to sustain its premium through the day on NSE and on the BSE too; although the overall premium was quite small.

On the NSE, out of the total 380.28 lakh shares traded during the first day of trading, the deliverable quantity represented 160.92 lakh shares or a deliverable percentage of 42.32% on the NSE, which is definitely lower than the routine listing day median and hinting at substantial speculative activity on the NSE.
