The article reports on the failed consolidation of the London Stock Exchange (LSE) by the National Association of Securities Dealers Automated Quotations (Nasdaq) in Great Britain. The LSE decides to remain independent refusing the £2.4 billion bid of Nasdaq. The consolidation is speculated to create the world's largest equity market and provide a trans-Atlantic competitor to the proposed New York Stock Exchange acquisition of Euronext.
