Changes in the stock exchange industry

The U.S. stock exchange industry has changed dramatically over the past few years.   The New York Stock Exchange merged with Euronext to become NYSE Euronext.   The American Stock Exchange merged into NYSE Euronext.  The Philadelphia and Boston stock exchanges merged into the NASDAQ.  NYSE Euronext just merged with Deutsche Börse AG.  Meanwhile, the new the BATS Exchange and Direct Edge now each handle about 10% of U.S. trading volume.   I edited the Stock Exchanges, Stock Exchange Rules, Listing Applications and New York Stock Exchange entries to account for the changes.
