It's official -- the NYSE and Deutsche Boerse merger is over:
NYSE Euronext (NYSE: NYX) announced today that in light of the decision by the European Commission to block the proposed merger agreement, both companies have agreed to a mutual termination of the business combination agreement originally signed by the Companies on February 15, 2011.
It will be interesting to see what is Plan B for the Exchange. This is a big setback on its plans to dominate the global markets.
