Time to short CME.
Who wins kcbt and mgex? ICE bought Winnipeg... Is the exchange trade over? Or more to come?
Too bad. Would have been nice to see the ICE mix things up. Long live the Evil Empire!
What is your thinking here? Did CME overpay for CBOT?
Nevermind all that, how long before ECBOT contracts move over to GLOBEX?
Yea, get ready for huge rate hikes until some other exchange creates contracts that can compete with Treasurys, Eurodollars, and the indices. How is this not a blatant breach of anti-trust?
CME/CBOT now has a complete monopoly on US Interest rate futures (2 yr, 5yr, 10yr, 30 yr, Eurodollars), US stock index futures (YM, ES, NQ, ER), Agricultural futures.
Am I missing something here?
They certainly overpaid, but it's more of a classic "sell the news" setup.
Yes, ICE stole the ER from CME.
Now if they can only get ER back.......MERGER WITH ICE!!!!!!!
nymex - ice ... now what ?
