Bottom line:

The US IPO market has slowed down this year after its robust performance in 2021. The SEC has recently rolled out new rules for SPACs and the crypto market to protect investors’ interest, given the volatility and other risks. Investors, however, should apply due diligence before investing in the stock market.
