NYSE and Deutsche Borse Won’t Merge

It looks like The New York Stock Exchange won't be joining forces with Deutsche Borse after all. The two exchanges are in talks to call off their merger after European antitrust regulators said the deal would result in a monopoly in the European financial derivatives. The regulator said the exchanges would have to sell off major parts of their business if they wanted to merge, which the companies refused to do. The combined exchange would have been the world’s biggest market operator.
