CHICAGO Feb 14 CME Group Inc (CME.O) may make
a hostile bid for NYSE Euronext NYX.N, creating a potential
bidding war for the the New York-based exchange operator after
Germany's Deutsche Boerse AG (DB1Gn.DE) said it was in advanced
talks to buy it.
CME may team with Nasdaq OMX Group (NDAQ.O) to buy NYSE
Euronext, according to a report on the website
flyonthewall.com. Fox Business News is also reporting that CME
may make a bid.
A CME spokeswoman did not respond immediately to a Reuters
request for comment.
