12:12 EDTICE, NYXIntercontinentalExchange requests withdrawal of registration statement
On behalf of IntercontinentalExchange (ICE), the undersigned hereby respectfully requests that the company’s registration statement on Form S-4 (File No. 333-186231), filed on January 25, including exhibits, be withdrawn from registration with the SEC pursuant to Rule 477 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. The Company and NYSE Euronext (NYX) have agreed in an amended and restated merger agreement, dated as of March 19, to revise the structure of their previously announced merger transaction to provide that the company will acquire NYSE Euronext under a newly formed holding company, IntercontinentalExchange Group to facilitate the implementation of the governance provisions that will be required to be put into effect in connection with the transaction. Pursuant to the amended and restated merger agreement, all outstanding shares of ICE common stock and certain outstanding shares of NYSE Euronext common stock will be converted into rights to receive shares of ICE Group common stock at the closing of the transaction. The company requests that the Commission consent to the withdrawal of the ICE Registration Statement since, under the revised merger structure, ICE will not be issuing securities in the proposed transaction. Instead, ICE Group will file a registration statement on S-4 to register the shares of ICE Group common stock to be issued in the transaction.

07:28 EDTICESEC officials weighing curbs on trading fees, WSJ says
SEC officials, including some commissioners, are considering a trial program to curb "maker-taker" fee plans that are a major source of revenue for exchanges and some high-frequency trading firms, according to The Wall Street Journal. Fund managers, including BlackRock (BLK), are concerned about the negative effects of maker-taker, the report added. IntercontinentalExchange (ICE) CEO Jeffrey Sprecher, along with representatives from T. Rowe Price (TROW) and from RBC Capital (RY), recently held a series of private meetings with SEC Chairman Mary Jo White to push for its elimination, according to the report, citing people familiar with the matter. Like IntercontinentalExchange, which owns the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ) is a publicly-traded exchange operator. Reference Link

13:43 EDTICEFidelity to pitch new lost cost trading venue to large asset managers, WSJ says
Fidelity is working on a new trading venue, dubbed "Sakura," that it hopes will be a collaboration among big mutual-fund firms to reduce costs and streamline trading and will be an improvement over other "dark pools," reported The Wall Street Journal, citing people with knowledge of the matter. The report said Fidelity is in the initial planning stages and has just started pitching the idea to other large asset managers. Publicly traded fund managers include BlackRock (BLK), Franklin Resources (BEN) and T. Rowe Price (TROW), while Investment Technology Group (ITG) currently operates dark pools that facilitate block trading among large institutions. Exchange operators Nasdaq (NDAQ) and Intercontinentalexchange's (ICE) NYSE have previously testified to legislators that too much trading occurs in dark pools, hurting investors. Reference Link

06:58 EDTICEDark markets could cause more harm than high-frequency trading, Reuters says
After a book by financial author Michael Lewis sparked worries that high-speed traders have been rigging the U.S. stock market, former regulators and academics say a more serious threat to investors could be the increasing amount of trading that happens outside of exchanges, reported Reuters. Top internalizers include units of KCG Holdings (KCG), Citadel, UBS (UBS), and Citigroup (C). Dark pool operators include Credit Suisse (CS) and Morgan Stanley (MS). In an attempt to earn back some of the retail orders, exchanges such as IntercontinentalExchange Group's (ICE) New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq (NDAQ), and BATS Global Markets, have allowed brokerages to place dark pool-style orders on their platforms, with the trade hidden until after it is executed.
