NYSE & Deutsche Boerse Call It Off

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.
