MCX started its
operations in November 2003. However, the exact incorporation date
for the same is unavailable, and hence plotting a chart for the
Exchange is not feasible.

exact date on which the issue would be listed is also not available.
Hence, Ganesha looks at the horoscope of the three probable days on
which the issue may be listed. These three dates are 7th March, 9th
March and 12th March 2012. On 8th March, the Exchange would remain
closed on occasion of Holi.

Listing Date is 07/03/2012

07-03-2012, the conjunction between Moon-Mars shall occur in the
speculation House. And, during this time the Lord of the speculation
House shall be posited in the zodiac sign Aquarius in such a manner
that it shall form an aspect with its own House.

is the Lord of the 4th House, and it shall be posited in the Madhya
Nakshatra. Meanwhile, Mars ascendant, the Lord of the 8
House, shall be posited in the Purvafalguni Nakshatra. Besides, Ketu
Maha Dhasha shall continue till 14-12-2015, while Rahu Antar-Dhasha
shall continue till 01-12-2012.

all the aforementioned planetary aspects, if the MCX IPO listing
takes place on 07-03-2012, then Ganesha advises the investors to make
gradual exits while making profits. The short-term view in such a
case shall be barely average. Ganesha doesn’t see a lot of
opportunity in such a scenario.

Listing Date is 09/03/2012

from the Moon moving from the 5th House to the 6th House, and in the
Uttarfalguni Nakshtra (constellation), there shall not be any other
major planetary shifts on 09-03-2012. However, if listing happens on
this day, the scrip shall be under the influence of Sun’s Maha Dasha
from this day onwards, which shall last till 21-04-2012. Also,
Mercury’s Dasha is going to continue till 14-12-2012, which is why
the scrip is going to be more popular with the intraday traders than
it may be with the regular investors. The reason for this is that the
6th House is the signifier of the intraday jobbing at stock market.
And therefore this particular listing day is likely to be very
favourable for intraday jobbing, predicts Ganesha.

Listing Date is 12/03/2012

12-03-2012, Mercury shall be in a retrograde motion in the Zodiac
Sign Pisces. This is a debilitated sign for Mercury. Thus, on
12-03-2012, Mars and Mercury shall be in a debilitated sign, while
Saturn shall be in the exalted sign.

this day, Moon shall be in the Zodiac Sign Libra in the Swati
Nakshatra (constellation). And, Saturn and Moon shall make a
combination. From this very day onwards, Mars’ Antar-dasha in Rahu’s
Maha-dasha shall begin, and this will continue till 07-09-2012.

if listing happens on this date (12th March 2012), volatility and
confusing signals can be expected. This shall happen due to the
planetary combinations getting formed between Mars-Rahu and
Moon-Saturn, on this day. Ganesha advises His patrons to be careful
of the illusions, which may get created during this time in the
market. Overall, the long-term results shall be profitable. However,
if you see the possibility of small gains in the short-term as well,
Ganesha advises you to make profits and exit gradually.

wishes all the traders and investors all the luck.
