NYSE: Tokyo Drift

Publish date:

The official alliance between the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) may be announced tomorrow on January 31. Then again, it may not. Who knows? Certainly not the Wall Street Journal. The alliance would coincide with NYSE’s recent global expansion that included last month’s acquisition of Euronext and buying a 20% stake in India’s National Stock Exchange.
Regarding the recent splurge of acquisitions, John Thain, CEO of NYSE Group, commented, “If You Ain't Outta Control (from the regulatory ambiguity caused by the increased globalization of markets), You Ain't In Control (of many of the world’s exchanges),” then rode off in a really tweaked out Eclipse.
NYSE Group (NYSE: NYX) is up slightly in today’s trading, at $100.18.
