More on the ICE/NYSE hookup: Following the purchase, ICE plans to try and spin off Euronext - NYX's European stock exchange operation. The "crown jewel" of this deal is NYX's European derivatives operation - the Liffe, and ICE just paid a lot to get it. CME Group +0.2% premarket. ICE -4.1% premarket, but has been halted since 90 minutes before the official announcement. NYX remains halted.
