I came across an article about the possible NYSE and Euronext merger on Yahoo! news: NYSE Euronext Would Offer 12 Trading Hours If the merger proceeds, NYSE Euronext would be trading across 2 continents during 12 hours of trading. I think this would be fantastic. This would cause a lot more action in the markets with the potential for a lot of new traders and an inflow of capital. I’m waiting for the coming day of 24 hour trading – non-stop trading action. I believe 24 hour trading is still another 5 to 10 years away. What are your thoughts?
