The New York Stock Exchange Has a New Owner...Guess Who Bought Them?

In December, an "up-start" company called Intercontinental Commodity Exchange (ICE - Wikipedia entry here), announced that it was purchasing the New York Stock Exchange. The media had a few small mentions of it, as is always the case concerning these Earth-shaking insider deals.

Considering the gravity of the deal...the fact that an "up-start" company would be the buyer in the first place, and therefore, who's money was actually behind this "up-start" powerhouse, and what the "up-starts" very name implies that it was a globalist-created organization, my curiosity got the best of me.

As I began to research this in more detail (as to who owned ICE in particular), I came across this gem, which to be frank, didn't surprise at all, since this seem to be the norm in this on-going living nightmare, which we are all a party to these days.

Merry Christmas from the New World Order!

Who knows how to read between lines? For I kindly propose two lines, in the forms of hyperlinks, for anyone's curiosity :

Link #1 - featuring Sen. Judd Gregg (Business Insider; Aug. 9, 2012) :

No worries, folks ! "They" had ALREADY found the solution to go over the cliff "safe and clean" and they were just too humble to have advertised more about it (since last August) !

How modest ... But. Woohoo. We're safe, aren't we ?

I tell ya : we're oh so lucky in our good big bucks crony... sorry... I mean, "policy"... makers' good hands, just as usual. They do so great. Don't they ?

Thank you for "sticking around", ex-Sen. Gregg !

I read the board also - just a web of globalist good ole boys!

As all of these boards are...always connections to the same kinds of people, who come from the same types of schools and organizations, who often sit on multiple boards simultaneously and who all seem to be connected to this vast corporate grid. They are like spiders building a collective web and we are all caught little insects trapped in their entangling clutch, just waiting to be sucked dry and devoured by these soulless parasites.

$600 Trillion Exchange! New Reality of Derivative Trading

Why buy what is real... when $600 trillion buy all you can eat of what is not! Diet exchange trading...

derivatives: No calories. Less filling. Nutrition: 0% Fat. 0 Calories.

This takeover illustrates starkly how trading in commodities and derivatives has become much more lucrative than trading in the shares of companies. Warren E. Buffett warned in 2003 that the “derivatives genie is now well out of the bottle,” and that the genie, even after a global financial crisis, was not going back. Currently, derivatives — financial bets tied to underlying assets like oil prices or interest rates, among other things — are a $600 trillion market. Even the parent of the N.Y.S.E. attracted its suitor largely because of its ownership of Liffe, a major derivatives exchange in London. http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2012/12/20/exchange-sale-reflect...

Who bought it

Rothschilds? or..?

House of Cards & Georgia Peach

Goldman, Morgan Stanley, & the Boyz. The $147 barrel of oil is in their trophy case.

Mr R was sorry he could not attend the NYSE funeral, but sent a nice letter saying his family approved of it.

2001. ICE acquired International Petroleum Exchange, London

ICE’s largely unnoticed earlier acquisition, in June 2001, of the International Petroleum Exchange in London had already expanded ICE’s presence, and helped push it down the path of futures trading. By the spring of 2005 the company’s portfolio of energy futures had become fully electronic. http://blogs.platts.com/2012/12/20/ice_history/

Great work

Thanks for the link!!

ignored by the media?

If you followed CNBC, bloomberg news or FOXBusiness they had it as a top story all day long.

I need to clarify that the media ignored the investigations...

of ICE that had happened on the past occasions in the other dealings. TY

I realy hate it when some ignoramus labels the kind of activity described in the article as capitalism. This is not capitalism. It is fraud and theft enabled by our corrupt politicians. The same way the sub-prime scam was fraud and theft.Capitalism and truly free markets have allowed more people to live in freedom and comfort than any other system ever previously devised. To condemn capitalism on the basis of these thefts is total ignorance that plays right into the politicians hands. They use your ignorance to grab even more power to "regulate" in favor of their friends.
By definition, a falsley manipulated market is not a free market. WISE UP!!

Intercontinental Exchange Inc. (ICE): Goldman & Morgan Stanley

Intercontinental Exchange. Inc. (ICE): Goldman & Morgan Stanley Submitted by Mark Twain, 11/17/2010

Goldman Sachs & Morgan Stanley created ICE (their private start-up Casino exchange) run Oil price up to $147 / barrel. What those rascals did was illegal in America so they off-shored it. Actually, they bought this small Georgia, USA commodity exchange back in the days when US investment banks could not dabble in commodities as investments. They bought this small brokerage exchange. Set up rigging. Then, tried their luck at running an international casino with commodity chips. Their $147/barrel oil price is legend. The gamed it profittably up & down. They became the US foreign legion... An international mercenary legion, unto themselves.

Oh, brother

It's no mystery who owns it. Big money chases bigger money. This is how things work. Does anyone imagine even for a second that Warren Buffet is going to start investing in a boutique office products company? Is anyone so ignorant as to think that Goldman Sachs would simply close up shop because they got tired of chasing profits?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IntercontinentalExchange

"IntercontinentalExchange, Inc., known as ICE, is an American financial company that operates Internet-based marketplaces which trade futures and over-the-counter (OTC) energy and commodity contracts as well as derivative financial products. While the company's original focus was energy products (crude and refined oil, natural gas, power, and emissions), recent acquisitions have expanded its activity into the "soft" commodities (sugar, cotton and coffee), foreign exchange and equity index futures.
In 2011, ICE and NASDAQ OMX Group joined forces to bid against Deutsche Börse after the latter announced a $9.5 billion deal to merge with NYSE Euronext. The two U.S. bidders ultimately withdrew after their bid encountered regulatory antitrust resistance. In December 2012 NYSE Euronext agreed to be acquired by ICE pending regulator approval.
ICE is organized into three business lines:
ICE Markets — futures, options, and OTC markets. Energy futures are traded via ICE Futures Europe; soft commodity futures/options are handled by ICE Futures U.S.
ICE Services — electronic trade confirmations and education.
ICE Data — electronic delivery of market data, including real-time trades, historical prices and daily indices."

And just who has anointed you the "Thought Police" here?

What is your little problem here? Who anointed you Gate-Keeper" of the Daily Paul? Are you the official censor here now? Please direct me to the area here where it states that!

You attack me for posting something that others here, besides you, may or may not find relevant, and you begin an arrogant and small-minded attempt to discredit the validity of my post? To coin a phrase (at the the risk of being accused of plagiarism by you also), "opinions are like azzholes...everybody has one" (except for some folks like you, whose "opinions" are much bigger than others).

Who cares what you think...go away if you don't like the subject of my post genius! Give me a break! You ought to run for President of the Daily Paul so that anything you say becomes so much more important than everyone else!

Get over yourself already!

Why so defensive?

Perhaps not love, but revenue lost.

Actually, I was surprised. Your helpful reply twas just bit harsh. The critic was a bit harsher. I hope my reply fares a tad better. Should be all three or four be stoned, pillared & left for the buzzards, least we had the first laugh.

As always Mr. Twain, you

As always Mr. Twain, you remain the gentleman. I suppose my reply was rather harsh and for that I apologize.

Many are left wondering where their wealth went. Me too!

For all my troubles, I am amazed that I survive. These days, I don't concern myself much about making money. Nor returning the money I have collected over the years.

    An inventor is a poet -- a true poet -- and nothing in any degree less than a high order of poet -- wherefore his noblest pleasure dies with the stroke that completes the creature of his genius, just as the painter's & the sculptor's & other poets' highest pleasure ceases with the touch that finishes their work -- & so only he can understand or appreciate the legitimate "success" of his achievement, little minds being able to get no higher than a comprehension of a vulgar moneyed success. - Letter to Pamela Moffett, 12 June 1870

LOL - Thank you! Sometimes the critic is best confronted with..

a hard dose of reality that they can understand clearly, instead of with sinewy metaphors and cleverly crafted riddles, no matter how well-crafted, quaint and entertaining they may be. That said however, I do definitely enjoy your witticisms.
