MUMBAI - In a notable development today, the unlisted shares of the National Stock Exchange (NSE) have experienced a significant surge, with prices climbing over 20%. The current trading range for these shares is now between Rs 3,800 and Rs 3,900. This sharp increase is primarily driven by a robust demand from retail investors coupled with a supply shortage, as larger investors have backed out of previous sale commitments.

The bullish trend in the NSE unlisted shares is partly a reflection of the positive sentiment surrounding the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) stocks, which have been performing strongly. Additionally, market participants are anticipating potential gains from the forthcoming Initial Public Offering (IPO) of the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL), which is expected to further fuel interest in the sector.

The heightened demand from retail investors for NSE shares comes at a time when the supply is particularly tight. This scenario has been exacerbated by the decision of some large investors to renege on their sale agreements, further limiting the number of shares available in the market. As a result, the imbalance between the high demand and restricted supply has pushed prices upward.
