BATS Global Markets, Inc/Chi-X Europe Limited

A Report on the Anticipated Acquisition by BATS Global Markets, Inc of Chi-X Europe Limited

BATS Global Markets, Inc/Chi-X Europe Limited

The Competition Commission (CC) has cleared the anticipated acquisition by BATS Global Markets, Inc of Chi-X Europe Limited. Both companies operate Multilateral Trading Facilities which enable market participants (investment banks, brokers and dealers) to trade equities through a single platform as an alternative to trading on exchanges such as the London Stock Exchange.In this final report, the CC confirms its provisional findings published last month and concludes that the acquisition is not likely to result in a substantial lessening of competition in trading services for UK-listed equities. The CC found that customers would have the power to prevent any attempt by the merged company to raise trading fees or worsen service quality, by taking, or threatening to take, their business elsewhere or even potentially sponsoring new entry. Such sponsored entry has occurred in this sector before: large customers have strong incentives to ensure that trading conditions remain competitive.

Paradox, Aphorism and Desire in Novalis and Derrida

Paradox, Aphorism and Desire in Novalis and Derrida

Building on recent investigations into affinities between early German Romanticism and French post-structuralism, this study brings together the work of Jacques Derrida with the writings of one of early Romanticisms most important theorists, Friedrich von Hardenberg (1772-1801), better known as Novalis. In contrast to recent criticism, which traces the historical path from Romanticism to modern theory in broad strokes, this book undertakes comparative readings of Novaliss and Derridas texts on literature and philosophy. The book focuses on the significance both writers accord to paradox and argues that readings which are attuned to paradox can better appreciate the proximity of Romanticism and post- structuralism. As well as their affirmation of paradox, the texts of Novalis and Derrida testify to a profound respect for the Other, and the close readings of selected texts reveal remarkable similarities in their thinking on literature, philosophy and representation, and on the intricate interrelation between language, identity and desire.
