Airbnb IPO: when can you buy and sell Airbnb shares?

Accommodation website Airbnb is set to be one of the largest stock market listings of the year, after the group filed a draft S-1 registration document with the US Securities and Exchange Commission.

Stocks open weaker, gold reclaims $2k, M&S streamlines quicker

Stocks yawned a bit, but Wall Street rose to within a whisker of the all-time high in another sub-1% daily move. Crowding into the tech trade showed no signs of letting up as the Nasdaq jumped 1% to a fresh record peak even as the White House announced new curbs on Huawei to restrict access to chips.
