On whether NASDAQ will make a hostile bid for the NYSE:
“Sources tell the FOX Business Network that a decision on whether to mount a hostile bid is imminent. This decision could come as early as today. A lot of these announcements are made on a Friday after the close. As of last night we know the NASDAQ and ICE were still talking about a joint hostile bid for the New York Stock Exchange. They are not talking to us; we have been putting in calls since last night.”
