Seifert's Options


LIKELY
Launch takeover bid for London Stock Exchange, perhaps in league with Milan, Madrid, or even Nasdaq

POSSIBLE
Surprise markets by linking instead with an electronic system such as Goldman Sachs-backed Tradepoint

UNLIKELY
Forget merging and try (again) to persuade other European stock markets to merge into a common trading platform

VERY UNLIKELY
Do nothing and risk being forced into obsolescence by electronic exchanges
