ICE Makes Bid for CBOT

Intercontinental Exchange made a $9.9 billion offer for CBOT Holdings, seeking to upset its merger plans with the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.  The WSJ described it thus:

"ICE's decision to make an unsolicited offer for the Chicago Board of Trade, which trades bond futures and agricultural contracts, represents a new competitive phase in the frenzied race to consolidate among global exchanges."
